Description

No more to say. They change. Unsleeping,
On the same bed they lie apart
(What terrifying miles), each keeping,
Unshared, his bitterness of heart,
The longing each feels for the other,
Their unburnt love. Perhaps another
–Who knows–attempt by Phil to touch
His shivering friend–Is it too much
To ask of him?–could still unite them;
But obdurate now, he won’t plead,
Demean his pride, reveal his need . . .
A hundred reasons–why recite them?
Ed falls asleep at last, but Phil,
At two, at three, is wakeful still.

The Golden Gate is a brilliantly achieved novel written in verse. Set in the 1980s in the affluence and sunshine of California’s Silicon Valley, it is an exuberant and witty story of twenty-somethings looking for love, pleasure and the meaning of life.
