The old (Gypsy) ways

In The Stopping Places (Chatto & Windus), Damian Le Bas, a Gypsy by birth, journeys round Britain from the fixed community he grew up in to “the world of wagons and tents that passed in the decades before I was born”. His book, which was serialised in The Guardian, has also been reviewed in The Spectator by Sara Wheeler, who describes it as “an excellent account of folk most of us don’t understand”.
