Black List, Section H by Francis Stuart

Black List, Section H, told in the third person by H, whose life and opinions mirror those of the author, bears witness to the dilemmas presented by love and art. H is a damaged individual, estranged from accepted morality. He is in search of punishment and redemption, finding solace among the defeated and the damned. A riveting autobiographical fiction, it is an awkward book with a mixture of nihilism and visionary anarchism.
Francis Stuart was born in Australia and brought up in Northern Ireland.
