A Class Apart: The Private Pictures of Montague Glover
A Class Apart is a selection of photographs and letters culled from the archive of Montague Glover (1898-1983), documenting the intimate, rarely recorded lives of gay men in Britain from the First World War to the 1950s. The book features Glover's three obsessions: the Armed Forces, working class men, and his lifelong lover Ralph Hall. A seamless blend of the personal and the historical make A Class Apart a unique portrait of a secret relationship and of an undiscovered period in British gay history.
