Summary
"Watkins portrays his eccentric and richly colloquial Celtic family; his vibrant Irish mam whose "hand is on the tiller" as the head of the household, and her tendency to burst into song; his principled but stout-loving Welsh dad, who dances a jig to escape from the fairies; an uncle, who gets the "heebie-jeebies" from round food; and his lovely Grandda, who has "a generous supply of Celtic songs and tall stories for all social occasions." The fleadh nights with his family are filled with poetry, music, and storytelling that bring forth a rich understanding of young Bill's place in Celtic history."--BOOK JACKET. "Watkins' boyhood as a good-natured miscreant finds him disrupting a wedding while dressed as a gangster, illegally operating a ham radio, and getting kicked out of Ireland for "vagrancy" while on a minstrel trail in search of his Celtic spirit and manhood."--BOOK JACKET
