    January 1932: Ben MacCarthy and his father watch a vagabond variety revue making a stop in the Irish countryside. Ben's father, mesmerized by Venetia Kelly, the troupe's magnetic headliner, makes a fateful decision: to abandon his family and set off on the road with Miss Kelly and her caravan. Ben's mother, shattered by the desertion, exhorts "find him and bring him back", thereby sending the boy on a Homeric voyage into manhood.

    California Vegan says: "What a joy!"
    "Story of the Irish writ large and small"

    What did you love best about Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show?

    Delaney wonderfully weaves together the spirit and complexities of personal loves and relationships with the national story of the emerging Irish nation.


    What does Frank Delaney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Frank Delaney is a great reader who brings the rhythms of the language to life. I read the book and listened to it and each experience complemented the other.
