ALAN HOLLINGHURST on The Sparsholt Affair at Charleston Festival

A new novel by the great prose-stylist Alan Hollinghurst inevitably leads to Booker Prize predictions. His sixth novel, The Sparsholt Affair, evokes the intimate relationships of a group of friends bound together by art, literature and love across three generations, from the Second World War to contemporary London. “The Sparsholt Affair is a sweeping and intimate masterpiece, full of sensual pleasures and observational wisdom” (Geoff Dyer, Observer). Alan Hollinghurst will discuss the novel and his writing career with Charlotte Mendelson, novelist, literary critic and author of Rhapsody in Green.
