They then lived together for the next five years and only fell out when Ackerley wanted to marry someone else, of course. A woman. It was The things Ackerley and his father could have talked about, if only they'd been frank with each other!

A more open and honest depiction of a gay man's sexual life his likes and dislikes, his promiscuity, sexual incontinence, and his endless search for "the ideal friend" hadn't yet been written. Published the year after Ackerley's death, this book and Crisp's "The Naked Civil Servant" clearly inspired a generation of gay writers.
