Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 3 February 2011.

I just love this man’s writing.  The 17-year old, razor happy gang leader, Pinkie, is one of fiction’s great characters, truly nasty.  Despite the dated period, the underlying message is the same today as it ever was.  It is perhaps Greene’s greatest book.

This title is presented with an introduction by J.M. Coetzee. A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold. Greene's gripping thriller, exposes a world of loneliness and fear, of life lived on the 'dangerous edge of things'.

    “It is the storyteller's task to elicit sympathy and a measure of understanding for those who lie outside the boundaries of State approval.”
