It was regarded as so outrageous that thirteen publishers initially refused to publish it. The Hand-Reared Boy no longer shocks, instead, it stands as the classic novel of teenage self-discovery and the realisation of a young boy of love, and the fact that other people are more than sexual objects. Depicting the preoccupations common to all young boys as they reach puberty, The Hand-Reared Boy is a delightfully funny account of burgeoning sexuality, marked by self-revelation, self-mockery and a complete absence of prurience. It was shortlisted for the Lost Booker Prize in A tender love story.
In the amorous mishaps of Horatio Stubbs, the inability of teenagers to distinguish between love and sex with painful fidelity. Its story of an adolescent suburban lad, his brother and schoolfriends, horny and sex crazy, is a graphic portrait of the sexual trials of teenagers in the 30s.
The Horatio Stubbs Saga by Brian W Aldiss
The first British novel to explore sexuality in such a frank and honest way. A sustained paean to male masturbation. It would be easy to express some sort of outrage at the relentless tugging, the lines crossed, the taboos broken, but the book is characterised above all by a welcome honesty A touching tale. Aldiss is best known for his science fiction novels but this work It concerns Horation Stubbs, a boy just reaching puberty, and his sexual awakenings. It was the first English novel to explore such a scenario in such frank detail.
It is explicit, still quite shocking but also very funny. Added to basket. Past Tense. Lee Child. The Clockmaker's Daughter. Kate Morton. In a House of Lies. Ian Rankin. The Secret Hours. Santa Montefiore. Normal People. Sally Rooney. Andrew Miller. The Handmaid's Tale.
