Poignant and heart wrenching yet replete with hope, The Obsession of Henry Enright captures the mood of an era through the eyes of a misguided soul seeking to know and be known.

A stranger in a strange town, Henry Enright is thirteen when he moves with his Irish Catholic family from Boston to Union in 1954.

The simple country life and relief from the oppression of his strict Catholic upbringing was at first freedom and joy but it turned to tragedy when he was forced to identify the bodies of his friends killed in a car wreck.

In a time when rock and roll has just started to play from the jukeboxes and the sexual revolution is on the rise, Henry, determined to remake his image and be accepted by his peers, begins to make a dramatic transformation.

With only his wits to guide him in his rebellion against authority and religious hypocrisy, Henry has no idea how devastating the consequences of his revolt against the world around him will be.

Presented as fiction but reading like a memoir the reminisces of Henry Enright revealwith candor what life was like in the rural town of Union, Massachusetts in the 1950’s.
