The queer literary classic that inspired the 2009 Oscar-nominated movie starring Colin Firth.

When A Single Man was originally published in 1964, it shocked many by its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in midlife. 

George, the protagonist, is adjusting to life on his own after the sudden death of his partner, and determines to persist in the routines of his daily life. 

A Single Man spans twenty-four hours in an ordinary day. An Englishman and a professor living in suburban Southern California, George is an outsider in every way, and his internal reflections and interactions with others reveal a man who loves being alive despite everyday injustices and loneliness. 

Wry, suddenly manic, constantly funny, surprisingly sad, this novel catches the texture of life itself.
