About the Author

Alan Hollinghurst was born in Stroud in Gloucestershire, England in 1954 and was educated at Magdalen College, Oxford. Between  1982 and 1995 he was on the staff of the Times Literary Supplement.

 

His first novel, The Swimming-Pool Library (1988), gives a vivid account of gay life in London during the early 1980s. It was followed by The Folding Star (1994), which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for Fiction and won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize (for fiction).  In 1998 he published Spell, a gay comedy of manners.

 

Hollinghurst's credits include the translation of Jean Racine's 17th century play, Bajazet, which was first performed in 1990.

 

The Line of Beauty, published in 2004, describes four years of change and tragedy in 1980s Britain;  it won the 2004 Man Booker Prize for Fiction.
