Borstal Boy

BEHAN, Brendan

Regular price $150.00 Sale

In his autobiography, Behan depicts himself as young, fervently idealistic rebel who loses his naïveté over the three years of his sentence to a juvenile borstal. Gradually he softens his radical Irish republican stance and warms to his British fellow prisoners. The book is considered by critics to be the author's best prose work.
