Young Tom by Forrest Reid
The work of Forrest Reid is celebrated for its powerful evocation of childhood, particularly evident in his famous Tom Barber trilogy, which chronicles the growing awareness of a young boy from his early years to his adolescence.
Here, in Young Tom, we meet Tom Barber at his youngest in a tender and understanding study of a sensitive but resolute child.
