Brighton in the 1960s. Nick has fought many battles to gain his independence. Now he is a published poet, owns his own bookshop and is as integrated in straight and gay society as he can be. But when Bart appears on the scene, and Greg returns to Brighton with Karel, a new adventure of desire, intrigue and sexual possibility begins.
Nick’s House is the third book in the Nick & Greg series by John Roman Baker.
The Nick & Greg books chart the lives of two friends Nick and Greg from their first meeting at the age of fourteen one afternoon after school in late 1957, through their teenage adventures in the swinging sixties, to young maturity and the gay liberation of the 1970s.
From the outset, despite being against the law, Nick and Greg are sexually uninhibited and adventurous and seek to experience all that life and society have to offer. As time passes they find new friendships and relationship but, like two sides of one coin, they retain an inextricable bond.
Set predominantly in Brighton, the ‘gay capital of England’, the author creates a vivid kaleidoscope of the times, taking in Swinging Sixties London and post-’68 Paris, that includes many cultural reference points notably in gay literature, popular music, film and theatre as well as documenting social and political changes.
A British Tales of the City, Nick and Greg will charm, intrigue, excite and leave you longing for their next adventure.
