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.’
