This review is from: Borstal Boy (Hardcover)
Although this book was written some years ago, its sentiments still ring through. Captures beautifully the state of mind of a confused young man who genuinly believed all he had been taught by his anti-anglo grandmother. Beautifully written and very touching autobiographical account of the authors early life. A pity he failed to learn from many of the mistakes he made and went on to lead an eventful but ultimately tragic life. Highly recommended. Very funny and at times very sad and touching. Will strike a cord with many people who have found themselves in extreme situations having to survive alone.
