Macker's Garden

(1982)
A novel by

 
 
"Macker's Garden" is a first novel about two opposites - opposites which are also affinities. Five boys move through the garish pleasures and pressures of adolescence. Macker feels most sorrowfully the quick and gradual changes in the gang, but nourishes his hope as a talisman against misfortune; Nessie tries to abandon his doubting self in the security of the intruder - Sara.

These characters, and many more like them, inhabit "Macker's Garden" with a rare and thrilling vision.
