Man's World

by Rupert Smith
£8.99   paperback  Arcadia Books (2011)

Man London Today: a world of sex and drugs and designer clothes, where Robert searches fulfilment in gay clubs. London 50 years ago: Michael enters a secret queer underworld, negotiating the dangers of the law and the closet.
 
Past and present collide when Robert moves into a new block of flats, and discovers that history is alive and kicking on his doorstep. Robert keeps a blog - a chronicle of the contemporary gay experience that would have been unthinkable 50 years ago. Michael kept a diary - a secret record of his experiences that could have landed him and his friends and lovers in prison. Two parallel narratives - two generations - two worlds that barely recognise each other. But do Robert and Michael have more in common than they think?
 
Man's World is a funny, sexy and moving story about how much the world has changed - and how little.
