Why are the well-written gay books with superior prose always so, damn, sad.
This is the story of relationships between men who were prisoners of war during World War II. It has a "masculine" tone, a heartbreaking ending and a very intense last page. I read this in one day while sick with the flu and then cried myself to sleep.
A profound book and probably a hard one to write, as it was based on the actual experiences of it's author, Tatamkhulu Afrika.
