Neil is a fiction author of some note whose last book, Always the Sun, was longlisted for the Man Booker and while writing it he was inspired to turn to his own tortured childhood, of which this is the result so it has the feel of fiction but because it is true, it of course is inconclusive. One is left wondering what happened next but that, to me, is its only fault, if indeed one can call it a fault for this is a genuinely compelling and heartrending story of a confused young life.
