Growing up in his parents hotel in Blackpool, Brian never knew why his family fled Ireland, but he learned early to escape his father's demonic rages by slipping away from the Alexandra Hotel to the beach and the Kathleen R, the fishing boat that was to become his refuse and his sanctuary. Later, forced the law in England, Brian arrives in Australia seeking to overcome a growing dependency on alcohol,and the subsequent damage he is wreaking on the lives of those he loves. In a style that is both raw and compelling, The Boy in the Boat tells the riveting story of Brian's childhood, his triumph over alcoholism, his inspirational journey towards recovery, and ultimately to realization that he was molded, shaped and prepared during his childhood years for the meaning and purpose of his life.
