Now twenty-four, the future looks promising for Robin Gibson, until doubts intrude and events take a turn to challenge his certainties. Not yet the time when a gay lifestyle can be pursued with impunity, he faces upheavals that rock his world.
Set in the mid ’70s, ‘Some Kind Of Happiness’, the second novel in Nigel Austin’s quadrilogy, captures the promise and the disappointment of the decade, as reflected in the finely observed characters it portrays.
Once again, the author combines his mastery of language and astute perception with a wicked sense of humour and incisive wit. The result is an unpretentious account of ordinary lives, exploring emotional highs and lows in a way that makes them extraordinary and captivating …and finds a ready response in the reader.
