Spokes: Stories from the Romani World

by Janna Eliot - £5.99  Five Leaves Publications (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781905512478 | ISBN 10: 1905512473

A scarlet wheel on a blue and green flag, bright against the grey sky. Gisela leaned against the stone balustrade, tired after the journey. She'd forgotten how hectic London was, and wondered how she'd ever managed to cope with the daily commute... But she was glad she'd come. Glad she'd brought Andrej. It was important for her young son to know his roots.
 
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.
