"I have only read one other Hollinghurst book - The Swimming Pool Library - and this was many years ago. I seem to recall quite enjoying it at the time, but not exactly being blown away by it. Since then I have been advised by many others (time and time again) that Hollinghurst is one of the greatest writers of our time. So, I thought I would revisit this author's work and find out what I might have missed the first time round.The Stranger's Child is an epic, spanning separate time periods, which is a storytelling tool that I have enjoyed with other books we have read as a group."
