Very good. The follow up is called The Charity Committee, not sure it was ever released, but it exists (ive read it) in pdf form. Where is the author now though?

Yeah I heard about it and that it's about a grand to buy a copy because no bookshop will sell it because they get burnt out for selling it

Mike Tonkies,  Moobly about a guy living totally feral with his German Sheppard.  Cracking book, I read it probably over 20 years ago, but was always a favourite. Worth a read fellas

Read the Judas Pig book found it a decent read but found the part were they were cutting about with guns like in down town Harlem a bit hard to believe. Wildcats i found a decent read but was surprised to see a few names of lads in it who i know i often wondered if they knew their names were mentioned in this book.

I read A Kestrel For A Knave a couple of weeks ago, probably nearly 40 years after I first read it. I remember like it was yesterday getting it from the library, after watching Kes for the first time. Still a good wee read, and this time round brought loads of nostalgia from reading it a a kid, but also remembering my misspent youth, walking through woods and along hedgerows nesting, and scanning the skies for Kestrels (realistically the only raptor I was likely to see local). 

I was brought  up in the  same  village  where it's  based  and  filmed  ,the  author  Barry  Hines  lived there  I went to school  with  his 2 children  ,my  mam still lives there ,next street  to the chip shop  and  club that were  in the  film ,I've climbed  that wall more times for a young  kes or a little  owl ,still there but in a bit of a  state now
