Alexander's Choice is a novel set at Eton College in 1983-4 by Edmund Marlowe, an old boy of the school, as his début work. It tells of the love affair of Alexander Aylmer, a new boy at the school aged 13-14 and Damian Cavendish, a new, young English master.

The subject of boylove at Eton has been briefly alluded to in previous fiction, notably in The Fourth of June by David Benedictus (1962)[1], but this is the only novel to have made it its main theme.
