Brilliantly written. Really gets a person thinking.
LiteraryGiant(tb) (04/04/02)

A well written novel expressing a depressing life. You will learn much about Frank's miserable Irish childhood but overall it's not an autobiography you wanna read over again. Something so sad can't be loved but yet can't be ignored. Nou it's not perverted it's his life. Di yo want him to lie??
