Description

Twenty-two-year-old Oscar is a lost cause. He roams central London, looking for love and distraction. But this isn’t quite Bright Lights, Big City: Oscar is gay but feels disconnected from London’s gay scene. He is naive and rootless, an emotionally stunted young man who lives in upscale Kensington with his foster mother, novelist Charlotte Fontaine.

But all of this changes when Oscar meets Tim, Charlotte’s thirty-something literary agent with whom he becomes hopelessly infatuated. While he struggles to understand Tim’s politics and his rejection of religion, Oscar’s developing friendship with Tim affects a profound change in the young man, making him want to understand the world and his place in it.

    “Loizou’s supple prose excels at vivid London scene-scapes and sharp social commentary…A richly observed portrait of Britain’s young and feckless.” –Kirkus Reviews

    “Fasten your seat-belts. It’s going to be a bumpy read. A real page- turner. Polis Loizou is a new name to watch out for.” –Jane Harris, award winning author of Gillespie and I
