About this product
- DescriptionIn these wondrously strange and revealing stories, Tom Kealey chronicles the struggles and triumphs of the young and marginalised as they discover many ways of growing up. Their names are Merrill, Omar, Shelby, Laika, Winston and Toomey, but most people don't see them. They are boxers in training and the children of fishermen. They are altar boys in a poverty-stricken parish. They are assistant groundskeepers and assistant camel-keepers. They travel with the circus, care for disabled siblings, steal police cars and retrieve the stolen boots of a priest. Ranging in abode from Puget Sound, Washington, to Pamlico Sound, North Carolina, they are abandoned yet courageous and plucky children and teenagers living on the edges of society. Thieves I've Kwn is a collection of powerful, moving stories about the lives of a redemptive and peculiar cast of young characters who become easy to kw and difficult to forget.
