Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
From New York Times bestselling author Eliot Schrefer comes an exuberant YA historical coming-of-age novel about a rising star French pianist, navigating his way into high society as he explores his sexuality. Perfect for fans of Last Night at the Telegraph Club and The Gentleman's Gide to Vice and Virtue.--
They say Ľon Delafosse will be France's next great pianist. But despite his being the youngest student ever accepted into the prestigious Paris Conservatory, there's no way an impoverished musician can make his way in 1890s Paris without an outside patron. Young gossip columnist Marcel Proust takes Ľon under his wing, and the boys game their way through an extravagant new world. When the larger-than-life Count Robert de Montesquiou-F̌zensac offers his patronage, Ľon's dreams are made real. But the closer he gets to becoming France's next great thing, the further he strays from his old country life he shared with his family and his best friend F̌lix . . . a boy he might love. With each choice Ľon makes, he must navigate a fine line between two worlds--or risk losing them both.
