Eliot, Janna
Format: Paperback

Spokes is made up of stories from across the Traveller world, featuring British Gypsies, settled and still travelling; Irish Travellers, East European Roma; and people whose Romani background has remained under wraps in the face of a hostile world. There’s an old violinist, a middle-aged mechanic, a young radio presenter, a schoolboy, a retired banker, a tea lady and a teacher. Sometimes humorous, sometimes tragic; every story is based on real incidents.
