Peter Waring (1937) is a full-scale revision of Reid’s earlier Following Darkness (1912) in which Peter, a sensitive boy with literary inclinations, grows up unhappily in the household of his father, a cold village schoolmaster in Newcastle, County Down, and among his Belfast relatives whom he finds intolerable.
‘An acute and subtle story of adolescence…. A delicacy and a grave beauty which make their own quiet appeal.’ Times
