Oh, this is such a charmer! Kabak follows the indelible, indefatigable Shibby Magee during two crucial years in her life, one in girlhood and then another at midlife womanhood, as she struggles against prejudice, cruelty, and abandonment in her search to find her true place in an increasingly confounding world, be it in a bustling restaurant or going on the road as an Irish Traveller—a whole extraordinary world of wily outcasts that I had never heard of before and was delighted to encounter. Warm, wise, with dashes of wit and a distinctly Irish accent, Kabak’s novel is just magnificent.
--Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and With or Without You.
