Synopsis

It is the summer of 1969 and ten-year-old Mal is finding it difficult to settle into his new home, a housing estate on the outskirts of Belfast. He befriends a brash and rebellious teenager, Francy, who revels in his own status as an outsider and has set up camp in the local dump.







But this is no ordinary summer - the civil rights marches are beginning, and the simmering sectarian tensions of the Larkview estate are set to erupt, hastening Mal's painful, shocking loss of innocence.







A critically acclaimed classic by one of today's best Irish writers.The book also contains an essay by Glenn Patterson and a critical essay by Carlo Gebler. Glenn Patterson is also the author of Fat Lad, The International and The Third Party, all published by Blackstaff Press.
