Publisher's Summary

The tragic-comic story of two young men, aged 21 and 18, who fall in love in the summer of 1962, but who have the misfortune to be working as teachers in a Catholic preparatory school at the time. Their names are Tom and Christopher. In the opposite corner to them stands Father Louis, the elderly headmaster. It is his conviction that the sixties will go down in history as the decade which sees the earthly triumph of the Catholic Church. Life becomes more complicated for Tom and Christopher when Miss O'Deere, the art mistress, decides to paint the pair as David and Jonathan and to enter the result in a public exhibition. To say nothing of the inconvenient attentions paid to them by 13-year-old Angelo Dexter.

Loved this story...

Love this story, the narration by the author and the piano interludes. I first read this book several years ago when I came out and have listened to the Audible version twice.

The struggles off the 60s

Humorous , poignant, beautifully written. An account of Catholic attitudes and forbidden love in 1960s Britain.

Worth listening to.

The Dog in the Chapel is easy to listen to. The narrator, who is also the author, reads clearly and really makes the characters come to life. I especially enjoyed Father Louis’ sermons, the final one was really funny. The story carried one along, but I felt the ending was sad, I will say no more, because maybe you won’t think it is sad....Just to say I am glad there is, apparently, a sequel.
