The Tin Islands

by Kenneth Martin

"In The Tin Islands - his first novel for almost a decade - Martin vividly recreates the literary and theatrical worlds he knew when a teenager to create an astonishingly authentic novel about gay society between 1960 and 1970: A momentous ten year period during which attitudes subtly changed and law reform heralded the gay liberation of the years to come. Daniel Henry, a talented but introverted teenager arrives in London from his native Belfast to find success as an actor. Adrift amongst the glitterati, he desperately searches for a lover with whom he can settle down. Blatantly honest or breath-takingly naive, his expectations lead to both fulfillment and disappointment before coming to a curious culmination that is as unexpected as it is daring. For those who were there, The Tin Islands will be as atmospheric as a series of snapshots; to those who will read this as an historical novel, it will bring to life a decade when almost anything seemed possible."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
