Book description
The story of Laurence Carroll as he grows up from childhood to adult years. His struggles to emerge from the security of feminine protection, sometimes spontaneous and more often forced on him by circumstances, are told with warm humour and with that intense and sympathetic realism for which Cronin is renowned.
