"A subtle and beautifully observed social comedy."— The Times Literary Supplement

Handsome, proud, reprehensible, and misunderstood, Dominic Langton is the dark heart of Martin Boyd's much-loved novel. A Difficult Young Man is an elegant, witty, and compelling turn-of-the-century family tale, the quintessential Australian coming-of-age story.
