really liked it
bookshelves: contemporary
Read from March 22 to 30, 2010

The story of a boy raised Catholic in 50s-60s Britain. Wun's humour is irreverantly witty as his young hero, refered to as 'the Jeremy' develops from a curious yet dependant and supersticious child into an intelligent, thoughtful and rational young man. His development is explored through a stream of conciousness, with various Jungian-style psychological achetypes such as 'the sergant' and 'the professor' representing his various conditioned childhood guilts and repressions he must break free from if he is ever to become his own person and follow his own beliefs. A rather disturbingly accurate portrayal of a young child's developing mind.
