In these wondrously strange and revealing stories, Tom Kealey
chronicles the struggles and triumphs of the young and marginalized
as they discover many ways of growing up.
Their names are Merrill, Omar, Shelby, Laika, Winston, and Toomey,
but most people don't see them. They are boxers in training and the
children of fishermen. They are altar boys in a poverty-stricken
parish. They are assistant groundskeepers and assistant
camel-keepers. They travel with the circus, care for disabled
siblings, steal police cars, and retrieve the stolen boots of a
priest. Ranging in abode from Puget Sound, Washington, to Pamlico
Sound, North Carolina, they are abandoned yet courageous and plucky
children and teenagers living on the edges of society.
Thieves I've Known is a collection of powerful, moving
stories about the lives of a redemptive and peculiar cast of young
characters who become easy to know and difficult to forget.
