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 Mals 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 Gbler.
