Mikey Walsh left the Gypsy community and moved to London. It is the longest he’s ever stayed in one place. He taught himself to read and write and now works at a primary school, where he works as a teaching aid, and also picks up the formal education he missed out on as a child.
"This is a wonderfully readable tale of love, abuse and eventual escape--all lived in the heart of an English gypsy family. The father is one of the most frightening figures I've encountered in years."
--Edmund White, author of A Boy’s Own Story
"Reading Gypsy Boy, I felt invited into a secret society. I've always found Gypsies mysterious and even slightly dangerous, and Mikey Walsh does an excellent job describing the cloistered lifestyle and fascinating traditions of the Romani people. Moreover, Mikey's personal story of being a misfit among misfits is both compelling and universal. I cheered for him every step of the way."
--Julia Scheeres, author of Jesus Land
“A revelation. Moving, terrifying, funny and brilliant. I shall never forget it—an amazing achievement.”--Stephen Fry “Touching, insightful, funny and incredibly shocking.”--HEAT
