Review: Carmen and Lola, Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival 2019

In the introduction to the Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival screening of Carmen and Lola, the audience is invited to consider the ‘journey’ of the two protagonists. Being told this is a love story, but ‘narrative’ is the way each character changes as they develop, it feels as if set an assignment is being set.

Review: The Sparsholt Affair by Alan Hollinghurst

The Sparsholt Affair opens in the manner of thousands of other books. It's the early 1940s, the war is raging and we, the readers, are midst an Oxford college getting introduced to a handful of characters. We encounter the title character David Sparsholt immediately as a mere 'shadow' seen through the window and the first part of the book, which is divided into five altogether, is mainly focused on the small circle of male protagonists and their fascination with the figure of David Sparsholt. But if you think that the book's focus is David you are wrong for his name is a symbol of a much bigger topic, a movement and its history that has slowly but steadily changed for the better: the gay movement.
