Bestselling author

Shortlisted The Man Booker Prize 1994

The past continually intrudes into the twilight world ... Alan Hollinghurst's breathtaking and Booker Prize-shortlisted novel.

Alan Hollinghurst's hypnotic and exquisitely written novel tells the story of Edward Manners, a disaffected 33-year-old who leaves England to earn his living as a language tutor in a Flemish city. Almost immediately he falls in love with 17-year-old Luc and is introduced to the twilight world of the 1890s Belgian painter Edgard Orst. With this novel, Hollinghurst exposes us fearlessly to the consequences of unfulfillable, annihilating desire.

'As is typical of the best classics, he has fashioned a universal tale of sexual obsession, love and death out of a particular life'
Marie Claire

'... a novel of considerable breadth. What gives it its depth is the candour, wit, sensuous immediacy and melancholy intelligence applied to it'
The Times Literary Supplement

'An extraordinary book which takes the reader into a world of obsession and mystery ... The Folding Star is lit by insight and humour'
The Evening Standard
