The Pavee and the Buffer Girl
Jim and his family have moved to Dundray but the town is proving to be an unfriendly place. In school the Traveller kids suffer at the hands of teachers and other pupils alike, called ‘tinker-stinkers', ‘dirty gyps' and worse. Then the punches start. The only friendly face is Kit, a settled girl who takes Jim under her wing and teaches him to read in the great cathedral chamber of the cave below the town. With Kit and the reading, Jim seems to have found a way to exist in Dundray, but everyday prejudice and a shocking act of violence see his life uprooted once again. A stunning graphic novel adaptation of Siobhan Dowd's moving story of prejudice and violence, the uncertainty of lives lived on the fringes of society, and of love in its many forms.
