Despite having a fiance, David becomes an object of intense desire among an elite group of closeted young students. They want to paint him, memorialise him in verse and in diaries, and be near him at mealtimes. Most of all, they want to say what one eventually does: "I had him.
We follow a handful of these men, several of whom are writers, through the novel. Primarily we follow David's son, Johnny, the product of his eventual marriage, who becomes a painter and who is also gay. The book moves from Johnny's experiences in raffish s London to the city's turn-of-the-millennium rave scene to his social life after the arrival of dating apps like Grindr, which turn out to be a boon for old as well as young men.
The 'affair' of this novel's title is an incident that looms over the narrative while remaining hazy in its details. In the mids, Johnny's father, by then a captain of industry, is caught in a tabloid scandal involving a Tory MP and male prostitutes. There is a trial. Books are written about the mess. The older Sparsholt retreats from the novel's view to lick his wounds while the incident reverberates through other lives. When Hollinghurst picks up an aspect of human experience, however banal - riding a bus, sitting for a portrait, being on a sailboat - he is so exacting that it's as if no one has described these things before.
Do we have a better appraiser of how the world sounds? Here is a young woman, Johnny's daughter, on place names: "'Fullum,' they said, a dead footfall, flour shaken in a Tupperware box unlike sugar, with its quick shoosh, which to her mind was the sound of Chelsea. Maggie Dallen.
