Jack Holmes and His Friend
______________ ‘This comedy of sexual manners may be White's finest novel’ - Sunday Times
‘An elegant study of the paradoxes and half-truths that emerge in long-standing friendships’ - New Yorker ‘Marks White out as an immensely gifted chronicler of the intricacies of the human heart’ - Alex Clark, Guardian ______________ Jack Holmes is suffering from unrequited love. It doesn't look as if there will ever be anyone else he falls for: the other men he takes to bed never stay for long.Jack's friend Will Wright comes from old stock, has aspirations to be a writer and, like Jack, works on the Northern Review. Jack will introduce Will to the beautiful, brittle young woman he will marry, but is discreet about his own adventures in love - for this is sixties New York, literary and intense, before gay liberation; a concoction of old society, bohemians rich and poor, sleek European immigrants and transplanted Midwesterners. Against this charged backdrop, the different lives of Jack and Will intertwine, and as their loves come and go, they will always be, at the very least, friends.
