The Gay Men's Press (GMP) title published in 1988. All copies are new, but show the age of their publication.


Donovan Crowther in 23 years old and still a virgin. Romantic and uncertain, he is drawn to London in his search for love. And from the moment he arrives in the capital, it's clear that whatever happens, his life will never be the same again. 


The Novice is a story of innocence and experience, and the hopes and realities of being loved for hte first time.

"I found The Novice wonderfully sincere and felt and fresh...It's a lovely piece of writing." -- Edmund White
