A wonderful book and far better than I was expecting I was inspired to pick up Borstal Boy having come across a reference to it in the marvellous Handsome Brute The Story of a Ladykiller Neville Heath a once infamous 1940s British murderer was incarcerated before he was convicted of murder with Brendan Behan at Hollesley Bay borstal in SuffolkBrendan Behan was arrested in Liverpool aged 16 with explosives and the intention of blowing up the Liverpool dock The first section of the book covers his period on remand in Walton prison near Liverpool Needless to say the prison officers and many of the prisoners were very hostile to an IRA man arrested with the intention of planting a bomb Indeed most of the Irish people Brendan met whilst on remand in an effort to show they were loyal to England were often even hostile This was a dangerous time for Brendan Behan however his stoicism guile and humour and the few friends he made helped him to deal with this challenging periodOnce sentenced and after a brief period at Feltham Brendan Behan had the good fortune to arrive at Hollesley Bay borstal where he made many good friends and where the enlightened approach of Prison Governor Cyril Joyce aka the Suire allowed the boys to work and flourish in a constructive environment This section is the heart of the book Brendan Behan's hard line republicanism softens as he discovers how much common ground he shares with his working class friends Brendan Behan's descriptions of the various characters he encounters throughout his imprisonment and the humour and humanity he describes is compelling The description of his attitudes and the attitudes of those around him is very interesting and revealing It's an illuminating insight into prison conditions during the late 1930early 1940s and full of humour humanity and occasional horror Overall it's a very enjoyable and uplifting book which is testimony to Brendan Behan's personality and his skill as a writer 55
