    Imagine Wodehouse set in the 1940′s with a gay main character as rich as Bertie and used to getting his own way in all things It’s not a comedy as such although it has some amusing moments it’s a witty satire and an exploration of a particular set of men–gay and otherwise–in 1940′s LondonPatrick is as the first line describes “very very rich” He’s currently single and as the book opens he’s shopping for presents for a

    A sort of Dangerous Liaisons via The Boys in the Band excuse the anachronisms this short work tells of rich and manipulative Patrick and his select victims and associates in post WWII London Nicholas is his new target and Patrick sets him up as his new boy toy but Nicholas is deservedly hesitant Patrick toys with his colleagues about starting a magazine Among those he enlists are the eccentric fashion wine cuisine snob R

    Published in 1958 but written much earlier It is set pre WWII A period piece perhaps The characters are generally effete hedonists who people a world that I rather hope doesn't exist any Patrick is Rich ueen Bitch par excellence There are other characters here who rank pretty high up on the obnoxiousness list too This is the sort

    This is an old fashioned written in 1958 gay comedy of manners It is the story of a handsome and naive young man recruited from the provinces by a rich and sophisticated older gay man Need I say It reminded me of early Patrick Dennis and a prologue in the GSV edition that I read explained the whom the leading characters were based upon I first heard of this book in the Edward Gorey biography because Gorey designed the cover for the earliest
