Описание: A gripping and unnerving story of a family's secrets and lies, from the bestselling author of 'Notes from an Exhibition'. Julian as a small boy is taken on the
perfect Cornish holiday. When glamorous American cousins unexpectedly swell the party, however, emotions run high and events spiral out of control.
Though he has been
brought up in the forbidding shadow of the prison his father runs, though his parents are neither as normal nor as happy as he supposes, Julian's world view is the sunnily selfish,
accepting one of boyhood. It is only when he becomes a man -- seemingly at ease with love, with his sexuality, with his ghosts -- that the traumatic effects of that distant summer rise up
to challenge his defiant assertion that he is happy and always has been.

Описание: Youthful beauty, intellectual brilliance, physical passion, tragedy and disgrace are all in, this wonderful new Patrick Gale novel, as told thrgh the eyes of a 14-year-old girl. Phil is a self-contained, exceptionally bright child, who has no known parents and has spent all her life in a children's home. Her life is transformed, when she wins a scholarship to Tatham's, a kind of Oxbridge university for teenagers, but this is only the start of an education as much emotional as intellectual. She falls hopelessly in love with Lucas, adored gay son of a wealthy Jewish family and, through him, is drawn into a tangle of betrayed friendship and forbidden passions that ends in tragedy and disgrace. But school is only half the story. Spanning the years 1975 to 1979, the chapters alternate between terms and holidays, between Phil's dogged pursuit of the glittering prizes and her slow, painful discovery of, who she is and where she belongs. Through other people's families, and especially other people's mothers, she learns as much about the mysterious laws of class and love, as she learns from her teachers, about the Latin and Greek that will prove her passport to security.
