With five outspoken older sisters and a very watchful mother, Dublin teenager Jim Finnegan spends his days among women, but for a 14-year-old boy with hormones, they are not exactly the girls with whom he wants to dally. Though self-conscious, shy, and fumbling, he somehow becomes manage to get involved with an attractive 18-year-old, but even before he and his new girlfriend decide to make a clandestine ferry trip to London, he becomes the prey of choice of an exceptionally stern parish priest. Set in the eighties, The Fields is a sweetly funny debut about a young man navigating a stormy path between adolescence and manhood.
