However, Rodney is taken to London by his uncle, a highly respected gentleman familiar with the most important people of Great Britain. The novel intertwines Rodney's coming-of-age story with his friend Jim's boxing attempts. Jim was brought up by a blacksmith and a famous former boxer whom he believes to be his uncle.
