Publisher's Summary

Continuing the story of Joe from A Son of War, this is the story of the rapid changes in his life from working-class Wigton to the rarified atmosphere of Oxford as he begins his studies there.


What the Critics Say

"He has laid the foundations for one of the finest literary sagas of post-war Britain." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Bragg has returned to the subject of Wigton many times over his long career as a novelist and BBC commentator, and his deep affection and knowledge of the place give strength to this coming-of-age story." (Publishers Weekly)
"McGann has a wonderful voice, and he transitions well from the angst Joe feels when experiencing his first love to the maturity and judgment Joe exhibits in dealing with more complex situations." (AudioFile)
