Gavin is an ordinary young boy growing up on a 1950s slum-clearance estate development on the fringe of industrial Tyneside. Although a challenge for his parents, an underachiever at school and socially unacceptable to his peers, he nonetheless carries his own personal mystery and through him we experience a fascinating perspective into a uniquely rich world which gradually takes on a whole life of its own. This disturbing and starkly honest novel makes no attempt to get inside Gavin’s head but traces his troubled life through a series of closely-observed episodes and gritty adventures that lead to the mordant climax of his adolescent destiny.
