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.
