O’Brien: When Boys Become Youths

“He recalls what happens when boys become youths. They go crazy. They lose all sense. They stop playing enjoyable games. They abandon their contempt for girls. They throw their shoulders back and walk about like cockerels half the time. It is inevitable. It is a force of nature.”

– Michael O’Brien, Island of the World (p. 83)
