Seller: Jeanine Cummins

Offered: Jeanine Cummins' new novel, The Outside Boy, signed to the winner by the author.

The Outside Boy is a poignant and magical tale about the travelling people in Ireland, a way of life all but vanished. Cummins captures that world in pitch perfect prose, charming and beguiling till the story nearly breaks your heart. - Keith Donohue, bestselling author of The Stolen Child and Angels of Destruction

In Hibernian society, there’s hardly a creature lower than the Irish tinker, a nomadic group ‘tis said was driven into the barren country by the fundamentalist Cromwell to starve. Regardless, the modern diminutive hero Christy, in Jeanine Cummins’s gloriously poetic novel, will burrow his way into your heart. It’s not often I hug a book, but with moist eyes and beginnings of a song in my heart, I followed Christy’s journey from a death to hopeful life. Read this lovely book and you will hug yourself.    -  Malachy McCourt, New York Times bestselling author of A Monk Swimming
