Queerty’s Fall Reading Recommendations: David Rakoff, John Boyne, And More

« Prev 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Queer author Peter Cameron’s 2012 novel Coral Glynn tells the story of a woman who arrives at Hart House, an isolated English manor, the in very wet spring of 1950. Coral is sent to nurse the elderly Mrs. Hart, who is dying of cancer. Hart House is also inhabited by an odd group of people: disgruntled housekeeper Mrs. Prence, Major Clement Hart, and Mrs. Hart’s war-ravaged son, who is struggling to come to terms with his latent homosexuality. When a something goes violently awry in the woods surrounding Hart House, a great shadow descends upon its inhabitants.

A period novel observed through a refreshingly gimlet eye, Coral Glynn explores how quickly need and desire can blossom into love, and just as quickly transform into something less categorical.

      Couldn’t care less – the new Pynchon is out September 17th and that’s all I’ll ever need.

      Please put it all on one page. I don’t do click-throughs and I believe I speak for the majority.
