While England Sleeps (by David Leavitt)

Publisher Notes: Set against the rise of fascism in 1930s Europe, While England Sleeps tells the story of a love affair between the aristocratic young British writer Brian Botsford, who thinks homosexuality is something he will outgrow, and Edward Phelan, a sensitive and idealistic working-class employee of the London Underground and a Communist party member. When the strains of class difference, sexual taboo, and Brian's ambivalence impel Edward to volunteer to fight against Franco in Spain, Brian pursues him across Europe and into the violent chaos of war.

REVIEW: “The burgers here are the BEST in DFW. It is truly a neighborhood secret. I am never disappointed in the quality and the cost is very inexpensive. The fries are great and so are the onion rings and the blackened chicken sandwiches. This is a great little place.” (Menu: custom burgers, catfish, wings, salad, more.)
