    Book details

Brighton in the late 1950s is a place of excitement and danger for Nick and Greg: two teenagers who meet one day after school. The town is their playground, and with all the innocence and recklessness of youth they run through its streets, uncover its secrets and discover their passionate desires for each other.

Gay life thrives in Brighton, but homosexuality is against the law and exists largely behind closed doors, invisible and unspoken. Against this backdrop, Nick seeks to expand his self-awareness through literature and a widening circle of friends. Greg though is constrained by denial, his family ties, and a pattern of increasingly self-destructive behaviour that threatens to unbalance his mind.

In Nick & Greg, John Roman Baker gives a frank, witty and authentic portrait of the lives of two boys growing up in a period when gay liberation was just a fairy tale and Oscar Wilde was a name to be feared more than any monster on a cinemascope screen.

This is the first book in the Nick & Greg series. It is followed by Time of Obsessions and Dangerous Seas.

Review Text

  • By queereye on 8 December 2016

    I loved this book. It's brilliantly written, intelligent, sexy and entertaining and went in directions I was definitely not expecting. Above all the two protagonists are a loveable pair of teenage rogues. They took me back to my youth (even though I was not around in the fifties) and I didn't want to leave them at the end of the book. I'm so looking forward to the second book in the series. Highly recommended.
