Information
First edition first print hardback of THE STRANGER'S CHILD by Alan Hollinghurst and published by Picador in 2011. Signed by Hollinghurst on the title page. Full numberline is 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2 indicating the book is a first printing. 'Signed by the author' sticker on the front.

The book is in near fine condition (black cloth boards with silver lettering to spine) with light handling and storage wear. The book is in a very good unclipped dust jacket which has light creasing here and there and light sticker removal residue to front cover. Internally the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears or other inscriptions.

From the Man Booker Prize–winning author of The Line of Beauty: a magnificent, century-spanning saga about a love triangle that spawns a myth, and a family mystery, across generations.

In the late summer of 1913, George Sawle brings his Cambridge schoolmate - a handsome, aristocratic young poet named Cecil Valance - to his family's modest home outside London for the weekend. George is enthralled by Cecil, and soon his sixteen-year-old sister, Daphne, is equally besotted by him and the stories he tells about Corley Court, the country estate he is heir to. But what Cecil writes in Daphne's autograph album will change their and their families' lives forever: a poem that, after Cecil is killed in the Great War and his reputation burnished, will become a touchstone for a generation, a work recited by every schoolchild in England. Over time, a tragic love story is spun, even as other secrets lie buried - until, decades later, an ambitious biographer threatens to unearth them.

Rich with Hollinghurst's signature gifts - haunting sensuality, delicious wit and exquisite lyricism - The Stranger's Child is a tour de force: a masterly novel about the lingering power of desire, how the heart creates its own history, and how legends are made.
