Michael takes us from the black depths of despair, to an unlikely chance for acceptance and meaning. I only have to think back to the conclusion to this story and my chest wells with emotion. Every time. No other book has done that to me. Once I knew the book, I listened to Michael’s CD, The Tramp, and found another dimension to this gripping tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars“The Tramp” Makes Compelling Reading

By Amazon Customer on 6 March 2017

I found this book a compelling read and I was reluctant to put it down. It deals with one of today’s most frightening social conditions, but does it in a creative and sensitive way that makes it easy to conceptualise, while at the same time engaging you with the lives and personalities of the characters. I found myself subconsciously relating this story to parts of my own life, and empathising with those struggling to make sense of the darker events in our lives.

A difficult topic, but handled in a compassionate and entertaining manner. I could almost describe it as uplifting. Really an excellent debut novel from Michael Cannon. I wonder if there is more coming?

I just finished reading The Tramp written by an old friend Michael Cannon. I can honestly say it was an incredible journey. An intricate story that I didn’t fully understand the depth of to begin with, but as this story progressed, I began to understand the complexities. Michael is an extremely talented musician and artist and now can truly add the string of author to his bow. Many thanks for sharing your talent.😊.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tale – I can’t remember the last time that I read a book as quick! I devoured page after page as I waited to find out The Tramp’s story and was not disappointed. Also, having the original music on CD added a novel immersive dimension when reading the lyrics as they appeared in the book. Now I can only wonder about how much of the story borrows from Michael’s direct experience and who was the inspiration for The Tramp himself?
