He would go from door to door offering his services, always hoping to strike lucky and find a 'grunter' - an old person who could be charged a lot of money for some trifling job.

This book has soft covers. After centuries of persecution Gypsies are wary of outsiders and if you choose to leave you can never come back. Mikey was born into a Romany Gypsy family. Well, that has definitely been righted in this follow up. They lived in a closeted community, and little is known of their way of life. Knowing that his homosexuality will never be accepted within his community, he does the unthinkable and associates with Gorgias non-Gypsies ; and then hatches a plan with Caleb, his first boyfriend, to run away from home and start a new life, knowing full well that to leave would mean never returning and to stay would probably kill him.

But that wasn't meant to be. A great-hearted book of tenderness and brutality. It is astounding that Walsh survived such brutality, without emotional support or formal education, to pen this unflinching but oddly generous memoir, demonstrating a respectful attitude toward Romany culture and affection toward his family.

Mikey Walsh

For so many, reading novels and short stories enables them to escape and to spread their wings intellectually and emotionally. How to survive on the run. Each experience proves a stepping stone to build better choices and the ability to make better decisions for the future. There are occasional flashbacks, always lucidly painted, to childhood moments; most memorably a time Mikey nearly drowned and was rescued by his father; another time when he was given an adorable puppy with a decidedly inappropriate name!

Later, the chums continue on their way, but Tom's car breaks down. He adored his family and the rich and vibrant Romany culture he'd inherited. The one time Mikey tried to explain what was being done to him, he faced yet another beating from his father for lying. I was fifteen years old and I was running away from everything I had ever known.

It was nice to see him reconnect with them, though it made me so terribly sad that he was still frequently beaten by his father who has been unable to let go of this irrational anger he feels towards his son.

He would convince them that their roof was falling apart, or their drive needed resurfacing, and then fleece them of as much as he possibly could. From an early age, Mikey was expected to continue his families tradition of being well known bear-knuckle boxers in the community, however Mikey always knew this is was not going to happen for him, so he was seen as a constant failure by his father who would give him regular beatings to try and toughen him up, although this had the opposite effect and made him more distant from everything around him.

These laws boil down to being as ruthless, selfish, manipulative, and deceitful as possible.
