THE SWIMMING-POOL LIBRARY by Alan Hollinghurst, read by Samuel West

Sam West's reading of this 1988 novel is delicate, artful, and beautifully modulated. The lives of a young playboy and an elderly gentleman become entwined in gay, pre-AIDS London. The subject matter is not for everyone and would be seriously unsuitable for some audiences.
