Homosexuality would not be decriminalised until a decade later- the scandal that ensued prompted Harveys resignation from the government and Parliament, and the end of a brilliant career. Originally published in 1971, Harveys account of his spectacular fall from grace is an extraordinary record of a time and its attitudes as well as a poignant reflection of a life caught unexpectedly in scandal.
