Product Description

Review

The most neglected writer of his generation (Elizabeth Bowen )

Pure, tense, and incontrovertibly a modern classic (Candia McWilliam )

Product Description

Ten-year-old Randal Thane is distressed to be taken from his mother, his governess and his home and sent to prep school. But once there, he discovers an adult world he had never before imagined, and falls unwillingly but entirely under the spell of a charismatic older boy, Felton, who will introduce him to all the pleasures, pains and perplexities of first love.



A unique, enchanting and complicated coming-of-age story about the passion between two young boys, In the Making is widely hailed as G. F. Green's masterpiece, and is now in print for the first time since its original publication in 1952.

2.0 out of 5 stars In The Making - G F Green 24 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this prompted by praise in a Times Literary Supplement article, but found it sloppily written with a faintly hysterical undertone. The author doubtless had an agenda (he served a prison sentence afer being convicted of a homosexual offence while a serving army officer) but this does not make for good writing. A far better-structured bildungsroman will be found in e.g. Sinister Street by Compton MacKenzie - a man who could really write!
