Publisher's Summary

Continuing the story of Joe from A Son of War, this is the story of the rapid changes in his life from working-class Wigton to the rarified atmosphere of Oxford as he begins his studies there.
©2003 Melvyn Bragg; (P)2014 Audible, Inc.

Critic Reviews

"He has laid the foundations for one of the finest literary sagas of post-war Britain." (Sunday Telegraph)
"Bragg has returned to the subject of Wigton many times over his long career as a novelist and BBC commentator, and his deep affection and knowledge of the place give strength to this coming-of-age story." (Publishers Weekly)
"McGann has a wonderful voice, and he transitions well from the angst Joe feels when experiencing his first love to the maturity and judgment Joe exhibits in dealing with more complex situations." (AudioFile)
