Product Details

Praise

The Spell contains the most delicately sensuous portrait-painting…brilliant imagery…and hilarious cross-purpose jokes… Sentence by sentence the novel weaves its magic ― Independent (London)

A masterpiece of sustained literary titillation ― The Times (London)

Love, lust and loss among a group of middle-class gay Englishmen… Young and old, the town and the country, the wild and respectable: Holinghurst explores each of these uneasy conflicts with wit, generosity and sharply observed comedy ― Mail on Sunday (London)

A bewitchingly beautiful tale… confirms his pre-eminence among the prose writers of his generation ― Daily Telegraph (Lonon)

Comic fantasy is grounded in a wealth of sharp observation and psychological insight. Hollinghurst has lost none of his authority ― Evening Standard (London)

“This colorful and often breathtakingly eloquent novel follows the lives of four gay men in the late ’90s.”
— Publishers Weekly

“…never less than honest and realistic…” –– Kirkus Reviews
