- John OLondons[R]ewarding . . . a story that is altogether plausible, entertaining, and not weighed down with tragedy. - Mattachine ReviewAt 32, Leonard Bissel seems to have everything going for him: newly appointed as the youngest director of a major London corporation, he has a posh house in Chelsea, a shiny black MG, and a promising new relationship.

Theres just one problem: Leonards boss and his family expect him to marry, not knowing that he is secretly gay and wants nothing more than to settle down in a stable relationship with his partner, John. As Leonards employer and his parents increase the pressure on him to marry, he will be faced with an impossible decision: is he willing to give up his job, his family, his home, and everything hes worked for in order to remain true to his own identity and the person he loves?Published in 1961, when homosexuality was still illegal in England, Martyn Goffs The Youngest Director is a landmark of British gay fiction.
