In 1940, Evert Dax and David Sparsholt, two young men from very different backgrounds, meet at Oxford University. Hollinghurst traces the lifes of these two young men; through several generations and from the darkest days of the Second World War the novel moves to the changing world of the a socially and sexually liberated London of the 1960s, before landing in the mid-1970s, with the three-day week, fuel shortages and power cuts. The reverberations continue through the next generation in the 1990s before reaching a conclusion in the present decade, a world of new media and new ideas.
