Playing with an ancient Irish myth in a semi-modern vein, Tinker’s Damn tells the story of Oisín O’Finn, a native Irish gypsy (properly called a Traveler or, rudely, a Tinker), his woman, the Irish Jewish felon with whom he teams up, and the displaced Rabbi who tries to help them. The Ontario Review excerpt contained seven chapters of the novel. To read and/or hear samples of any of the first three chapters, click on individual chapters below:
