Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland

Patrick Radden Keefe

Patrick Radden Keefe’s true crime masterpiece is a perfect example of how to take a brutal crime (the murder of a mother of 10 children in 1972 Belfast, Ireland) and use it to tell, in page after gripping page, a much larger history. Say Nothing delves into the stories of the IRA, the British occupation and the terrorism that plagued Ireland for decades. The book is empathetic, brilliantly constructed and unlikely to be surpassed as a document of what happened in Northern Ireland and how sectarian violence echoes long after the fighting has stopped.
