So a gay novel won the Booker---Alan Hollinghurst's The Line of Beauty. I picked up The Swimming Pool Library when it came out, back when I'd been out of school, and not reading current book reviews, just long enough to be choosing my reading arbitrarily in bookstores. I remember it had a strange feel to it; it was atmospheric in a way that wasn't primarily related to the language itself. I've hung on to it meaning to read it again some day. Now I'm wondering about this newly-touted one. Anyone have a review for me?
