Such Fine Boys
'Chance, as they say, is a fine thing, so when it does come you have to seize it. Sure, it might burn you, might freeze you, might turn you to dust and ashes. But it’s the one thing that matters in the end, and you simply have to go for it.'
On a visit to Yorkshire in the mid-1980s, Matt meets Billy. The love that develops between them, however, is constantly menaced, not least by the insanely possessive and malevolent Arthur, and after passing through stormy waters the relationship is abruptly broken off. Then something brings the boys together again. Something yet more threatening than anything they have previously faced.
