Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize: In the midst of the Troubles in Northern Ireland; a young schoolboy struggles to escape the destruction storming around him Inside his home in Derry; Joe Logan's life is ruled by his tormented father; outside; by the tension and violence of the Troubles. Sometimes his father makes him run errands despite the nearby reports of gunfire. Other times his mother; afraid to be alone with her volatile and war-wounded husband; confines Joe to the home. A bright and sensitive young man; Joe finds solace and freedom in writing—a pursuit encouraged by Kathleen Doherty; a young teacher at a nearby school whom he meets and befriends. In Kathleen; Joe has found a friend who understands him; makes him laugh; and allows him to forget his burdens for a time. But everything changes when his brother; Brendan; arrives home from London; newly energized to join the raging fray; and cavalierly bringing the war straight into their home.
