Join the author of 'Private Worlds', Jeremy Seabrook, in conversation with Tom Crewe.
In 1950s suburban England, a friendship bloomed between Jeremy Seabrook and Michael O’Neill – both gay men coming of age during a time when homosexuality was still a crime. Lyrical and candid, this is a tale of sexual identity, working-class history and family drama. A memoir of unparalleled authenticity, Private Worlds is an elegy for a doomed friendship.
Tom Crewe’s debut novel, The New Life, finds two men in Victorian London, John and Henry, as they decide to write a revolutionary book together, intended to challenge convention and the law; their relationship stalked by guilt and shame. Yet they share a vision of a better world, one that will expand possibilities for men and women everywhere.
