War and an Irish Town

By Eamonn McCann

'So honest, so human and so readable' Irish Times

Our book for November is Eamonn McCann's memoir of what it was like to grow up a Catholic in a Northern Irish ghetto. First published in 1974, it quickly became a classic account of the feelings generated by British rule. The author was at the centre of events in Derry which first brought Northern Ireland to world attention.

This trenchant, powerful narrative offers a unique insight into the events of the time and a springboard into understanding more about the political context today.
