(From the publisher):
This is the story of a boy's development towards homosexuality. As he progresses from a childhood spent largely in his grandmother's sickroom, through adolescence at a boy's school and at summer resorts, to young manhood during the war, and an abortive love affair with a classmate's sister, we realise that this is an account of youthful yearnings and loneliness which has its parallel in every civilized country.
