The Line of Beauty

Tomorrow night, the BBC screens the first episode of a three-part adaptation of Alan Hollinghurst’s The Line of Beauty, the Booker Prize-winning novel that evokes the spirit of fast living in London in the years of Thatcher.
 
It promises to be riveting television. There’s even a leader in The Guardian today praising the adaptation (but, he said pedantically, haven’t they got the hyphen in the wrong place in the phrase "Booker Prize-winning"?).

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
