Bernard MacLaverty (born 14 September 1942) is an Irish writer of fiction. His novels include Lamb, Cal, Grace Notes and The Anatomy School. He has written five books of short stories.

This novel, written by MacLaverty in 1980, is very different from his other famous book from that era, 'Cal', but equally good, and almost as depressing. The book tells the story of Brother Sebastian, Michael Lamb in 'civilian' life, a woodwork teacher in a remote borstal in Donegal, who has just lost his father and is having doubts about his vocation.

On a promontory jutting out into the Atlantic wind stands the Home run by Brother Benedict, where boys are taught a little of God and a lot of fear. To Michael Lamb, one of the youngest brothers, the regime is without hope, and when he inherits a small legacy he defies his elders and runs away, taking with him a twelve-year-old boy, Owen Kane. Radio Eireann call it a kidnapping. For Michael the act is the beginning of Owen's salvation. Posing as father and son, they concentrate on discovering the happiness that is so unfamiliar to them both.
