Award winning author

In his captivating memoir, Keneally conjures up his youthful self and those who influenced his life, providing insight into the future novelist, and an evocation of adolescence that is as funny as it is poignant.

In this vivacious memoir, Thomas Keneally conjures up his youthful self at a pivotal period in his life – as a red-haired teenager who idolised Gerald Manley Hopkins, had visions of being a sporting hero and dreamed of winning the heart of the alluring Bernadette Curran. The one role he did not see himself playing was priest, despite the encouragement of the Brothers at his Catholic school – until Bernadette announced her intention of becoming a nun. Drawing an affectionate portrait of the people who inspired and influenced him, Keneally beautifully captures the agonies and the ecstacies of adolescence.

'A wonderful little classic ... The Catcher In The Rye meets the language of Dylan Thomas.'
The Sunday Times

'A wonderful memoir [which] evokes Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man ... Buy it and feel, for once, better.'
Literary Review

'Keneally is particularly good on the parental relationships ... his disarming lightness of touch reveals self-analysis of a high order.'
The Times
