9780099284567: The Bonny Lad

Sonny Gee is six years old when his mother abandons him. He is taken in by his grandfather, Joe, a man he's never met, a former miner, grim and taciturn. Forced together and immediately locked in conflict, an inarticulate tenderness develops between the old man and the boy. For both of them, however, this new relationship is increasingly threatened by forces from the past.

By winner of the Betty Trask Prize and the J B Priestly Award.

Review:

" The Bonny Lad celebrates the redemptive power of love with humour and poignancy, without flinching form counting its cost... A warm and moving tale" ( Irish Times)

"Sonny Gee is an Oliver Twist for our times" ( Sunday Times)

"[The] friendship that develops between the unemotional retired miner and the damaged youngster is simply touching, rather like the whole of this gentle novel" ( The Times)

"Packs an emotional punch" ( Independent)

"Undeniably seductive" ( Sunday Times)

Book Description:

'Like an English Roddy Doyle, Tulloch's dialect and characterisation of a community down but not out is at once hilarious and heartbreaking' - GQ
