A singular syllabus from persons of note.

The Stranger's Child (Knopf), by Alan Hollinghurst

“This is, as readers expect, lyrical and sumptuously descriptive and psychologically acute. This time around, however, the novel covers a hundred years of English history and reveals that one of the most important poems of World War I was actually written to a boy and not, as everyone has always assumed, to a girl.”—Edmund White
