First published in 1953, The Charioteer is a a tender, intelligent coming-of-age novel and a bold, unapologetic portrayal of homosexuality that stands with Gore Vidal's The City and the Pillar and James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room as a landmark work in gay literature.

Emotionally intelligent, beautifully written and deeply moving, it transcends categorisations.
A tender coming-of-age love story from one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.
A stunningly good book.
