Review:
" 'As is typical of the best classics, he has fashioned a universal tale of sexual obsession, love and death out of a particular life' - Marie Claire. 'Even in its sexiest moments, it never loses its intellectual poise. Dry witticisms intersperse sweaty couplings... The Folding Star is a novel of considerable breadth. What gives it its depth is the candour, wit, sensuous immediacy and melancholy intelligence applied to it' - Peter Kemp, Times Literary Supplement. 'Few writers' prose can throw a party as easily as retire to the library as Hollinghurst's...[He] is on as fine a form in this novel as his first' - Tom Shone, Spectator. 'Grand 19th-century fin-de-siecle lusciousness, a seamy 20th-century carnality and a generous pinch of true wit' - Sunday Times"
From the Publisher:
'An extraordinary book which takes the reader into a world of obsession and mystery...The Folding Star is lit by insight and humour' Evening Standard
