Information
First edition first print hardback of THE SPARSHOLT AFFAIR by Alan Hollinghurst and published by Picador in 2017. A Waterstones Exclusive Signed Edition, October 2017. Signed by Hollinghurst on the front endpaper. Full numberline is: 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2.

The book is in fine condition (blue cloth boards with white lettering to spine) with no significant wear. The book is in a fine unclipped dust jacket which also has no wear to speak of. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

In 1940, Evert Dax and David Sparsholt, two young men from very different backgrounds, meet at Oxford University. Dax is a second year student reading English, coming from a rackety upper middle class background; Sparsholt is from a humbler Midlands community and is reading engineering, a young man whose good looks and fine figure have proved highly attractive to his peers.

This time is a unique one in the history of the university: with military call-up at twenty, soon brought forward to nineteen, almost all students come up to Oxford knowing that they will only have a year or so of study. A sense of futility is mixed with one of recklessness. All life after dusk is lived under black-out, encouraging and covering what would normally be impossible liaisons. What happens to these two men in this year will affect many lives and will set in motion the mystery at the heart of The Sparsholt Affair.
