Neglected for over forty years, this moving novel has been republished in a more tolerant climate. Two People is about a love affair in Rome between a middle-aged American and a much younger Italian boy. First published in 1965, when the word "gay" in its sexual implications was little used, Two People anticipated many novels about same-sex relationships that followed.
