This exceptional piece of fiction portrays Derry in the run up to - and the beginning of - what are known as the Northern Ireland Troubles through the eyes of a young boy via the memories of a traumatized mental patient.

There have been many exposes and tell-alls on the actual violence and philosophy and motivation on both sides of this conflict, but this provides a new perspective and fresh approach.

The protagonist is poignantly naive about the political landscape and no wonder. Life beyond the media and the posturing is shown to be quite challenging in itself.

I am reminded of the Diary of Anne Frank, with a touch of the Oz chronicles.
