Summary
Nearly everyone between the ages of eighteen and thirty turns against his family and wants to escape from it. When he is sixty, he wants to creep back to the nursery fireside, but it is no longer there. Handsome, proud, reprehensible, misunderstood, Dominic Langton is the dark heart of A Difficult Young Man. His brother Guy can scarcely understand where he fits into the pattern of things or what he might do next. Martin Boyd's much loved novel is an elegant, witty and compelling family tale about the contradictions of growing up.
