Young Adam, Paperback


Trocchi's narrator is an outsider; a drifter working for the skipper of a barge.

Together they discover a young woman's corpse floating in the canal.

Tensions increase in cramped confines with the narrator's highly charged seduction of the skipper's wife.

Compulsively readable, this is no ordinary thriller.

It challenges conventional morality. The certainty of events and their meaning is far from objective.
