About this title


This first novel by a young Irish writer is about the rite of passage of a ten year old boy on the streets of Belfast in the summer of 1969. The principle issues which characterize the Ulster troubles are explored as the tale unravels. Glenn Patterson is twenty-six and was born and bred in Belfast. In 1982 he left for the University of East Anglia, from where he graduated with an MA in Creative Writing.

About the Author:

Glenn Patterson is the author of eight previous novels, including Burning Your Own, Fat Lad, The International - 'the best novel about the Troubles ever written' (Anne Enright) - and The Third Party. He is the co-writer of Good Vibrations (BBC Films/The Works), an award-winning movie based on the life of Belfast punk impresario Terri Hooley.
