Allen Hollinghurst: The Line of Beauty
I am reading an excellent novel at the moment called Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst - it won the Book er Prize and is set in London, and more or less in the same milieu, as the time I lived there (1984-1987).
I have to say it is rather alarming to see the period described in the Guardian as "slipping from living memory."
As someone who must know London pretty well, you might enjoy Michael Moorcock's *Mother London.* Moorcock mostly wrote hack, self-indulgent fantasy, but this is a work of genius.
