On the Yankee Station

book | 4 | 1981
UK & Comm → Penguin
US → William Morrow & Co, Inc

Adolescent sex in a Scottish boys' public school ... Oddballs on the seedy side of America ... Murder in a quiet Devon cottage ...

Comical, ironical or lacerating - wit is the keynote of these stories, which include two early adventures from the career of Morgan Leafy, glorious anti-hero of William Boyd's prize-winning novel A Good Man in Africa.
