The Sparsholt Affair is the long-awaited sixth novel by Man Booker winner Alan Hollinghurst, one of Britain’s finest fiction writers. Opening in 1940, Hollinghurst’s novel evokes the lives of two young men – David Sparsholt and Evert Dax - who begin studying at Oxford University knowing that a call-up to the war is only 12 months away. It’s a prospect that inspires new freedoms and recklessness, and leads to actions that will impact on them for years to come. Following three generations of the Sparsholt family, Hollinghurst’s novel takes readers on a remarkable journey through post-war society, exploring the radical changes in British taste, morality and attitudes.
