Address Book - äänikirja
LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI PRIZE 2022
‘Gay love and desire, past and present, has never been so beautifully articulated as in Neil Bartlett's Address Book. He takes us into the homes and minds of a handful of strangers and then—in prose full of gentle foreboding—slowly peels away the layers until their truths are revealed. Defiant, potent—and ultimately uplifting.'
Address Book is the new work of fiction by the Costa-shortlisted author of "Skin Lane". Neil Bartlett's cycle of stories takes us to seven very different times and situations: from a new millennium civil partnership celebration to erotic obsession in a Victorian tenement, from a council-flat bedroom at the height of the AIDS crisis to a doctor's living-room in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. They lead us through decades of change to discover hope in the strangest of places.
‘Bartlett is a pioneer on and off the page and we are lucky to have him telling our stories'
‘One of England's finest writers'
