'Touching, insightful, funny and incredibly shocking' 4*
Explosive, sparkling and hugely entertaining - this is a twisted fairytale from a truly original mind
Gypsy Boy is a brilliant but bittersweet story, which reads like a magical fairytale. Although he could be excused for doing so, Mikey never descends into self pity - and has found the perfect balance between humour and harsh reality. Gypsy Boy sits somewhere between the grittiness of Irvine Welsh, and the charming warmth of Frank McCourt.
