Read full description of the books:
I had actually forgot how fantastic this book was. The last time I read this was when I was 19. The story is told from the perspective of Chris Metcalfe, with each chapter flicking back to the past (Then) and then to the present (Now). After the death of his father Chris finds an old school photograph that makes him face up to his past. At boarding school Chris had an affair with an older student (Stephen); although very brief it had a huge impact on Chris and his future life. This book is all about letting go of things in your past and looking ahead to the future (but not as cliche as it sounds). The aspect that I enjoyed in this book was seeing how Chris begins to open up to his friend and mother on his life and sexuality. If you want to read the best in gay fiction then perhaps this is a good place to start. Please do read it!!

Corlett was born in Darlington, County Durham. He was educated at Fettes College, Edinburgh, then trained as an actor at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.

Several of his works were adapted for the screen.
Later in life he came out as gay, and it was from his partner, Bryn Ellis, that he gained some of his inspiration for The Magician's House. Corlett died of cancer at Sarlat in France.
