A gay man is finding his way in post-war Ireland. The story begins in 1945 when a baby is born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural community. The baby is adopted as Cyril Avery by a middle-class Dublin couple and befriends a more confident, glamorous boy, Julian Woodbead, who provides a dubious anchor through much of his life. The drama of Cyril's life is tempered with glorious humour as Cyril blunders from mistake to mistake, living with the eccentricities of his adoptive parents - a philandering, fraudulent banker and his hugely successful novelist wife, who hates the fact that her books are read by the masses - coming to terms with his sexuality and forming a clutch of heart-warming, if unlikely, relationships. - Not only auto-biographical but revealing a good deal of the gay author's life.
