Educating Nicolas

Another true story, it still happens, of an Australian small town boy suffering multiple disadvantage of being too talented, too precocious, too handsome and far too intelligent.

He is abused, bullied and neglected, diagnosed as autistic, until Wally, a funny, eccentric old man with a speech impediment gives him a lift home after school, and changes his life.

Uncompromising in its eroticism and violence against a background clash of rural parochialism, the reader is left wondering how it can be possible to get talented and intelligent students through childhood without tearing them apart as human beings.
