The Swimming-Pool Library

In London, Will, a privileged, gay, sexually irresistible year-old, saves the life of an elderly aristocrat who has a heart-attack in a public lavatory. This chance meeting ultimately requires Will to re-evaluate his sense of the past and his family's history. As recounted at the beginning of chapter 7, at Will's old prep school , prefects were known as 'librarians', the designation often taking a prefix to indicate the particular prefect's area of responsibility. Will, a keen swimmer at school as afterwards, became the 'Swimming-Pool Librarian'.
