I stumbled on this by accident - a referral from another and so forth. This book represents the start of a series of books the main characters of which have become real quasi-friends. These characters are so richly presented, so human in their foibles that they are completely addictive. The writing is superb and it mirrors the era completely. A magnificent start to a magnificent series.
I loved this book! Set in 1950's San Frsncisco I was struck by the language and history of this time and the treatment of gay people then . The characters have a warmth and realness to them and a sense of fun too. I read the book in one sitting and am now hooked and will be reading the whole Nick Williams series !
