  • 'Boyle's memories are marked with fondness rather than sentimentality...with a sad twist in the tale guaranteed to grab you'

    The Scotsman
  • 'All the moving, tentative quality of male friendship is caught in flight. The period detail is exact, the ear for dialogue deadly'

    Dubliner Magazine
  • 'The significance of this friendship distinguishes Boyle's memoir from others...Far less self-pitying than Angela's Ashes'

    Glasgow Herald
  • 'Deftly chronicles a 1950s Catholic childhood. Particularly well drawn is the intensity of that first special friendship which one can never fully leave behind'
