Synopsis

A candid, humerous and often moving account of one man's secret life of homosexuality in a era when to be 'gay' risked not only being a social outcast but imprisonment if caught. The author's exploits and search for sexual happiness and expression start as a child on the Indian sub-continent, move on to his family's return to an austere post-war Britain, an unhappy and perhaps unjust dismissal from a promising army career in the Far East, through to the realisation that normal family life was never going to be an attainable goal in his global search for romantic bliss. From the shores of West Africa, where he finds true love, to Australia and the flesh pots of the Middle East, this a true human interest story of our time told with passion, humour and pathos. A real insight into a way of life that had to be secreted from the world for most of the author's life.
