London today: a world of sex and drugs and designer clothes, where Robert searches for fulfilment in gay clubs and chat rooms. London 50 years ago: fresh out of National Service, Michael enters a secret queer underworld, negotiating the dangers of the law and the closet, longing for liberation and love. Past and present collide when Robert moves into a new flat, and discovers that history is alive and kicking on his doorstep. Their two worlds barely recognize each other; but do Robert and Michael have more in common than they think? Man's World is a funny, sexy, and moving story about friendship and desire; about how much the world has changed - and how little. "[An] enjoyable read with well-drawn characters. At its heart, this is a novel about frienship and community.
