The Feathers of Death by Simon Raven

The Feathers of Death by Simon Raven


The Gay Men's Press (GMP) title from 1959, published in 1998. All copies are new, but show the age of their publication.


A classic tale of passion, perfidy in the British Army.


A Cavalry regiment in the 1950s is sent to suppress rebellion in an African colony. In the aristocratic world of officers and gentlemen, male love affairs scarcely raise an eyebrow. But when Lieutenant Alistair Lynch becomes infatuated with an inarticulate young drummer, the tensions with his friends come to a head -- just as his company are besieged by rebel tribesmen. Simon Raven's first novel is both a period gem and a lasting classic of gay adventure.




"An exceptional gift for storytelling...a masculine prose so good, a narrative verve so rare." -- The Times


"Seriously entertaining, gripping and in fact, memorable." -- Sunday Times
