John and Henry have a vision for a new way of life. But as the Oscar Wilde trial ignites public outcry, everything they long for could be under threat. After a lifetime navigating his desires, John, married to Catherine, has met Frank. Meanwhile Henry's wife Edith has fallen for Angelica. A shared vision for the future brings John and Henry together to write a revolutionary book in defiance of convention and the law. Their daring book threatens to throw John and Henry, and all those around them, into danger. How far should they go to win personal freedoms? And how high a price are they willing to pay for a new way of living?**Winner of the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction 2023****Winner of the South Bank Sky Arts Award for Literature 2023****GRANTA Best Young Novelist 2023****Longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize 2023**; 384 pages; 12/01/2023
