One of the most critically acclaimed books of 2004, The Line of Beauty is a sweeping novel about class, sex, and money that brings alive Thatcher's London.
Nick Guest has moved in with the Feddens, a family whose patriarch is a conservative member of Parliament. An innocent in matters of politics and money, Nick becomes caught up in the Feddens' world of parties and excess, as well as in his own private pursuit of beauty.
Framed by the two general elections that return Margaret Thatcher to power, The Line of Beauty unfurls through four extraordinary years of change and tragedy.
