Shifting from past to present and back again, Duncan tells of growing up in a string of foster homes, joining the military, earning a scholarship to Oxford, and negotiating the Kafkaesque bureaucracy of English immigration officials determined to keep him out. But here also is Duncan’s account of his evolving sexuality, the many masks he was forced to contrive for survival and acceptance, and a vivid rendering of the underground world of gay life at every level of academia, politics, class, and social life in 50s and 60s-era Britain.
An alien in his adopted country, an alien by nature of his sexual orientation, Duncan’s story is a touching chronicle of one man’s search for home--in a new country, with a man he loves, and within himself--a life no longer masked, but his own.
