Weekend Reads: Say Nothing

Bombings, prison escapes, hunger strikes, murder, politics - this spellbinding history of The Troubles has it all.   This is easily the best one-volume treatment of Northwen Ireland between 1968-1998 that I've ever read.   Keefe is a masterly writer who keeps you turning the pages. A brutal story that makes compulsive...

We’ll see how the latter goes….but back to the clean slate!\ In the shops...
