Zusatztext 'The boldly intimate memoir of an English Gypsy's struggle to define himself and his sexuality outside the bounds of traditional Romany culture. ... A great-hearted book of tenderness and brutality.' Informationen zum Autor Mikey Walsh was one of the first Romany Gypsies ever to write a book. He grew up living in a caravan on sites across the UK, and had hardly any schooling. He taught himself to read and write, and his first book Gypsy Boy published in 2008 and became a Number 1 Bestseller. It sold all over the world and a film adaptation is in the works as a joint production between BBC Films and Bowery & Bond. Mikey's second book, Gypsy Boy on the Run follows Mikey as he leaves the Gypsy camp, and takes his first steps in to the real - Gorgia - world, to find a place to belong. Mikey has had overwhelming support from all over the world since the publication of Gypsy Boy , including Stephen Fry who tweeted, 'It was a revelation. Moving, terrifying, funny and brilliant. I shall never forget it - an amazing achievement'. Attitude magazine called it 'the best memoir since Running with Scissors ' and even Dermot O'Leary and Dannii Minogue have reviewed it. Klappentext The follow-up to the bestselling "Gypsy Boy", in this memoir Walsh describes his battle to escape the Romany gypsy camp he grew up on. A coming of age story that sees him come to terms with his sexuality and his past and start to build a new life for himself. The follow-up to the Number 1 bestseller, GYPSY BOY.
