This book captures so many things in its 5 sections, most of which are one or two days set in 1913, 1926, 1967, 1980, and 2008, respectively (and each year captured somehow indelibly for me). Ostensibly about one family's intersection with another, it is also about literary sleuthing, similar to A.S. Byatt's Possession. The structure here is different, in that we get the real story first, and then see how memory and other factors influence how later generations interpret and intuit what might have happened. It might be more interesting to you if you care about reclaiming gay poets from obscurity (fictional, but nevertheless). However, it's also about the decline of England and the class structure in the 20th century, the impact of WWI (and to a lesser extent for the story--WWII) on a generation, the difficult role of the biographer, and the loss of beautiful poetry because its content matter might be too graphic for its time. And Hollinghurst always has a nice way with a turn of phrase or description. My fave of his is still Folding Star, but this book is recommended.
