a modern classic,
This review is from: Crossing the Lines (Paperback)
Crossing the Lines sees the central character of Joe - perhaps largely modelled on the young Bragg - undergo the rites of passage into adulthood before going to Oxford University. For those who grew up in the 1950s, it is an evocative reminder of those times and what it was to be young. Bragg is an excellent novelist and this trilogy is a significant contribution to contemporary British literature.
My partner and I have loved all the books in the trilogy. Perhaps the highest compliment we can pay is that they are books we hope to read again.
