Summer 1923 and all is well with Charles and Sebastian. It won’t last though.
I first read this after the Granada TV adaptation had been on and the copy I am reading at the moment is still the one with Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons on the cover. How I loved Anthony Andrews back then!
The religious turmoil at the heart of the novel has never meant that much to me but Sebastian’s sad plight has always touched me deeply. He simply cannot be helped.
