Davey Darling by Paul Shannon, (paperback 2006)
Shannon, Paul (1961 –) is a novelist. He was born in Ashburton and educated at the University of Otago. He has worked as a freelance writer and web consultant.

Shannon’s debut novel, Davey Darling (Penguin, 2006) is set in 1970s Christchurch and centres on twelve-year-old Davey, whose father Tiny is an abusive bully. When Davey witnesses an act of violence, he is forced to make some difficult moral choices. Described by the publishers as a ‘classic coming-of-age novel’, John McCrystal, reviewing Davey Darling in The Dominion Post (19 August 2006) wrote that: ‘this is a slightly unusual take on the genre. Davey is more knowing than the traditional coming-of-age hero, and less charming – indeed, there’s a serious dearth of appealing characters in Davey Darling. But the conventions are set aside in favour of something more interesting: an intriguing moral complexity, and a plot whose direction is hard to second-guess.’
Excellent read condition – very minor scuffing to edges.
