Reid, Forrest: Young Tom; 01 July 2020

Young Tom, the first of the Tom Barber series, was the winner of the 1944 James Tait Black Memorial Prize. The books were published in reverse chronological order; Young Tom was published in 1944, The retreat was published in 1936, and Uncle Stephen was published in 1931.

Though Forrest Reid's books are not necessarily well-known today, he has been labelled 'the first Ulster novelist of European stature', and comparisons have been drawn between his own coming of age novel of Protestant Belfast, Following Darkness (1912), and James Joyce's seminal novel of growing up in Catholic Dublin, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916). Reid's fiction, which often uses submerged narratives to explore male beauty and love, can be placed within the historical context of the emergence of a more explicit expression of homosexuality in English literature in the 20th century. (From Wikipedia.)

If you liked this series you may also enjoy the Jeremy series by Hugh Walpole (Jeremy, Jeremy and Hamlet, and Jeremy at Crale), also available here on MobilRead, uploaded by crutledge. They're not fantasy but I found them very enjoyable.
