A bit clunky in spots but nicely done overall. Unusual, interesting and important in that it treats the growing closeness between the boy and the young man not in isolation, but in the context of the man's involvement -- mainly friendly and affectionate, sometimes hostile, sometimes ambivalent -- with all the members of the boy's family.
