Books Info:

Boy free pdf Acclaimed by luminaries such as William Faulkner, suppressed for more than fifty years by a prosecution for obscenity, James Hanley's 1930s classic charts the short and brutish life of a boy forced out of school and into the unforgiving world of work. Escape - in the form of stowing away on a ship - only deepens his exposure to the squalor and brutality that men are capable of, and when he arrives in Alexandria he learns there are some things that one can't run away from.

About James Hanley

Born in Liverpool to Irish immigrants, James Hanley left school at an early age to become a sailor. His experiences at sea informed many of his works, including Boy, a novel so controversial that it was only published in a limited, expurgated edition, and subsequently tried for obscenity. Unfairly neglected during his lifetime, only recently has this original, uncompromising novelist started to be reappraised as one of the finest English writers of the twentieth century.
