In this collection, one of Ireland’s best-known political figures brings us new and selected stories of politics, of family, of love and of friendship. These are portraits of Ireland, and especially Belfast, old and new, in times of struggle and in times of peace, showing how our past is always part of our present. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, always moving, these are stories of ordinary people captured with wit, with heart and with understanding. Introduction by Timothy O'Grady.

Gerry Adams

Former president of Sinn Fein and a TD for Louth until 2020, Gerry Adams has been a published writer since 1982. He has written seventeen books of autobiography and fiction, which have won critical acclaim and been widely translated.

THE STREET AND OTHER STORIES

‘He brings a wry humour and a detailed observation to small events ... If there is a unifying strand, it is compassion for people in difficult situations.’ 

The Sunday Times

Gerry Adams passes the test in relation to the question of literary talent. He observes, he describes, he knows how to maintain suspension, how to surprise, how to make one laugh, how to touch and move one emotionally, writing with authority and confidence, reflecting authentic working-class dialogue which rarely becomes sentimental … He never shies away from his plebeian Ballymurphy and West Belfast roots but gives voice to people’s struggles, domestic, political and moral

Danny Morrison

the book is a fine read. Adams is that rare revolutionary who can write humor as well as pathos and poignancy
