The Charioteer

ebook

A WWII soldier embarks on affairs with two very different men in a landmark novel that "transcends categorizations" (The Telegraph).

After being wounded at Dunkirk in World War II, Laurie Odell is sent back home to a rural British hospital. Standing out among the orderlies is Andrew, a bright conscientious objector raised as a Quaker. The unspoken romance between the two men is tested when Ralph, a friend of Laurie's from school, re-enters his life, introducing him into a milieu of jaded, experienced gay men. Will Laurie reconcile himself to Ralph's embrace, or can he offer Andrew the idealized, Platonic intimacy he yearns for?


This novel has been called one of the foundation stones of gay literary fiction, ranking alongside James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room and Gore Vidal's The City and the Pillar. Celebrated for its literary brilliance and sincere depiction of complex human emotions, The Charioteer is a stirring and beautifully rendered portrayal of love.


This ebook features an illustrated biography of Mary Renault including rare images of the author.
