After enduring an injury at Dunkirk during WW II, Laurie Odell is sent to a rural veterans' hospital in England to convalesce. There he befriends the young, bright Andrew, a conscientious objector serving as an orderly. As they find solace and companionship together in the idyllic surroundings of the hospital, their friendship blooms into a discreet, chaste romance. Then one day, Ralph Lanyon, a mentor from Laurie's schoolboy days, suddenly reappears in Laurie's life, and draws him into a tight-knit social circle of world-weary gay men, forcing him to choose between the sweet ideals of innocence and the distinct pleasures of experience. Originally published in the U.S. in 1959, »The Charioteer« is a bold, unapologetic portrayal of male homosexuality during WW II that stands with Gore Vidal's »The City and the Pillar« and Christopher Isherwood's »Berlin Stories« as a monumental work in gay literature.
