Growing up in a bizarre household of eccentrics, including a mother and father who wage silent war against each other, Thomas finds his first year as a teenager filled with ecstasy and misery. He downs his first drink, smokes his first cigarette, pursues the beautiful Gwendolin Hackett -- all while forming a special bond with his beloved, ailing Grandpa Walter, a World War II veteran prone to dark habits. An obsessive snooper, Thomas undertakes a quest to locate his grandfather's legendary pornography collection, setting in motion a series of misadventures that ultimately leads him to uncover secrets about his life that will change him irrevocably. The Peculiar Memories of Thomas Penman is a hilarious, engaging, and touching debut novel, a brilliant tale of one British working-class teen's unforgettable coming of age.
