An often hilarious window into the harrowing life of an ‘Irish Bastard’ farmed out across the Atlantic to Brooklyn, by the Sisters of Mercy in the 1950s.
John traces his journey from the orphanage, his discovery of sexuality, his conflicted relationship to the Catholic Church, through to his emergence as an independent young man: an identity he must also come to question and have reappraised.
Farrell suggests that ‘bastards’ live life in very different ways; ways that are not to be pitied but appreciated for the strengths and insights they reveal.
