Gypsy Boy. Mikey Walsh
Gypsy Boy. Mikey Walsh | Mikey Walsh
A classic tale of triumph over adversity, this is the story of one boy's struggle to escape from a secret world. Mikey was born into a Romany Gypsy family. Here he describes the vibrant and loyal culture he grew up in, and also the violence and grief which forced him to make the agonizing decision to leave.

Amazing memoir and peek into a community I knew almost nothing about. I wanted to reach in and “save” little Mikey from the harrowing things he encountered in his younger years. #book29of2021 #memorialbookchallenge

I enjoyed reading this as I like learning about other cultures but it was heart breaking at times

So far, better than Bury Me Standing, which I abandoned

#MemorableMemoirs. Mikey Walsh didn't go to school, travelled in a caravan and seldom mixed with non-Gypsies ... and this was in 1980s England. His story is funny and violent and heartbreaking in so many ways but utterly fascinating. #Booktober

Hobbinol I enjoyed it too!🤓 6y
