This is the original 1st Edition/1st Printing of Stephen Queen's beautifully crafted coming-of-age story set in 1920's Scotland.
The book charts one boy's journey from his slow awakening to adulthood, through the swirling mists of teenage confusion as he experiences death, love, revenge and discovery of secrets.
These are the catalysts for growing up, culminating in the defining moment when he recognizes it is the moment to grow up, take responsibility and fulfill who he is.
This copy is important, partly due to the fact that it is signed & doodled on the title page by the author, but mainly as it has also been dedicated to MARTIN on the title page.
This was an integral part of the main promotional campaign on the book's original release, whereby the author dedicated copies to "A Boy's Name" of the buyers choice
How many were dedicated to MARTIN is uncertain, but you can be sure that there weren't many!!
