Gypsy Boy on the Run

My Escape from a Life Among the Romany Gypsies

Este livro pode ser baixado e lido no iBooks em seu Mac ou dispositivo iOS.


Mikey Walsh didn't know what life was like beyond his Gypsy community. But after fleeing home at age fifteen, he had no choice but to find out.

After centuries of persecution, Gypsies are wary of outsiders, and if you choose to leave, you can never come back. Torn between his family and his heart, Mikey struggled to come to terms with the Gypsy culture and its violent, conservative traditions. At last, he decided to set out on his own. He soon discovered the outside world wasn't all that he expected, and his life would never be the same again.A shocking yet ultimately triumphant memoir, Gypsy Boy on the Run follows Mikey as he comes to terms with himself, his family, and his past—and builds a new life for himself.

Por Publishers Weekly

17/12/2012 – Walsh s debut work, the autobiographical Gypsy Boy, was widely acclaimed in the U.S. and the author s native U.K. for its unflinching portrait of growing up in the hypermasculine culture of a typical Romany Gypsy community in England. In his new book, Walsh continues the narrative from his previous book (in which he describes regular beatings by his father and ongoing sexual abuse by his uncle), and then recounts the difficulties that he faced at age 15 when he finally decided that running away from everything I had ever known is his only chance at living life on his own. His eagerness to leave is also driven by his acceptance of being gay, something that would never be tolerated by his father or his Gypsy community (although his mother is a supportive person throughout the book). The rest of the book is a relentless depiction of Walsh on the run as he moves from Leeds to Manchester to London, surviving through various odd jobs and a university acting program. Through all this, his angry father pursues him, offering a bounty for anyone who can find his son and bring him home. After Walsh returns home to confront both his father and his uncle, he achieves a resolution to the cultural tensions he has felt his entire life.
