One of the New York Times 10 Best Books of the Year BEST NONFICTION BOOK OF THE YEAR - TIME MAGAZINE ONE OF THE BEST 10 BOOKS OF THE YEAR - WASHINGTON POST NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST WINNER OF THE ORWELL PRIZE LONGLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD "Masked intruders dragged Jean McConville, a 38-year-old widow and mother of 10, from her Belfast home in 1972. In this meticulously reported book -- as finely paced as a novel -- Keefe uses McConville's murder as a prism to tell the history of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Interviewing people on both sides of the conflict, he transforms the tragic damage and waste of the era into a searing, utterly gripping saga." - New York Times Book Review, Ten Best Books of the Year From award-winning New Yorker staff writer Patrick Radden Keefe, a stunning, intricate narrative about a notorious killing in Northern Ireland and its devastating repercussions In December 1972, Jean McConville, a thirty-eight-year-old mother of ten, was dragged from her Belfast home by masked intruders, her children clinging to her legs. They never saw her again. Her abduction was one of the most notorious episodes of the vicious conflict known as The Troubles. Everyone in the neighborhood knew the I.R.A. was responsible. But in a climate of fear and paranoia, no one would speak of it. In 2003, five years after an accord brought an uneasy peace to Northern Ireland, a set of human bones was discovered on a beach. McConville's children knew it was their mother when they were told a blue safety pin was attached to the dress--with so many kids, she had always kept it handy for diapers or ripped clothes. Patrick Radden Keefe's mesmerizing book on the bitter conflict in Northern Ireland and its aftermath uses the McConville case as a starting point for the tale of a society wracked by a violent guerrilla war, a war whose consequences have never been reckoned with. The brutal violence seared not only people like the McConville children, but also I.R.A. members embittered by a peace that fell far short of the goal of a united Ireland, and left them wondering whether the killings they committed were not justified acts of war, but simple murders. From radical and impetuous I.R.A. terrorists such as Dolours Price, who, when she was barely out of her teens, was already planting bombs in London and targeting informers for execution, to the ferocious I.R.A. mastermind known as The Dark, to the spy games and dirty schemes of the British Army, to Gerry Adams, who negotiated the peace but betrayed his hardcore comrades by denying his I.R.A. past--Say Nothing conjures a world of passion, betrayal, vengeance, and anguish.

He's also made so many drops into the past that he's suffering from a dangerously advanced case of 'time-lag'. Unfortunately for Ned, an emergency dash to Victorian England is required and he's the only available historian.

Famous footballer Byron Fullard returns to his parents' home in Cumbria looking forward to indulging his passions for running and history and to spending time with his best friend, Johnny Hampson. His only concern is Johnny's uncertain relationship with the beautiful but enigmatic Nicky Reed, whose deep bond with Simon, one of her twin brothers, borders on the obsessive. But Simon's apparent suicide is the catalyst for the kind of spiralling violence that might be expected in Manchester, where Byron plays for the mighty Manchester United, but never in tranquil Cartmel, nestling as it has for centuries in the shadow of its glorious Priory. Johnny's father, Ed, a detective in the local police force, struggles to understand the mayhem suddenly consuming the quiet backwater as he desperately tries to discover the murderer before more lives are lost. A secret room, a selfish mother, family rivalries, a hooded stranger and Nicky's extraordinary behaviour all stretch Ed's imagination to its limits before he solves the case in dramatic style .or does he? Only echoes from the past and some startling revelations can bring final resolution and enable Cartmel to resume its ancient peace and beauty.

Say Nothing is the moving true story of four neglected siblings who were taken into care following the breakdown of their parents' marriage. Sent to a small croft in the north-east of Scotland, they endured an onslaught of physical and mental abuse at the hands of an elderly, inexperienced foster mother. For ten years the children's cries for help were ignored and misunderstood in the naive social-work climate of the late 1950s, and this heartbreaking personal account of cruelty and neglect reveals the effect this maltreatment had on their ability to adjust to a normal adult life. Say Nothing was written as a voice of support for all abused children who are afraid or were never given the chance to tell their story.

There were four of us--George, and William Samuel Harris, and myself, and Montmorency. We were sitting in my room, smoking, and talking about how bad we were--bad from a medical point of view I mean, of course. We were all feeling seedy, and we were getting quite nervous about it. Harris said he felt such extraordinary fits of giddiness come over him at times, that he hardly knew what he was doing; and then George said that he had fits of giddiness too, and hardly knew what he was doing. With me, it was my liver that was out of order. I knew it was my liver that was out of order, because I had just been reading a patent liver-pill circular, ...

"No soy tan vaga ahora, y yo vago menos." I'm not so vague now, and I wander less. It is now 1989, and sh** got real in the nineties, didn't it? Plenty to gossip and complain about, yo! Noamsayin? It was the end of communism, and the beginning of the New World Order, the New Robber Barons, and the New Wild West. In VOLUME 3 of TO SAY NOTHING: A DIARY OF MEMORY, it's Act Three for our hero-our anti-hero, our a-hero. He toddles west again to the University of Victoria to do another degree. Who knows? This one might work. And then, snatched by luck and grace from the jaws of starvation, he finds himself cubicle-ized for the next eleven years in the British Columbia provincial government, the slow drip of material comfort. And when the accumulation is adequate, the money buys pearls of great price-a new spouse, a new house, and appealing travel. There is less overall vagabonding, but there are short, intense exceptions. The trails of British Columbia and the swells of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii and California. And Africa! Twenty thousand kilometres across Africa in a truck and a van, sleeping in a tent. And there's more sexy stuff than ever. You have been warned.

May I Say Nothing is a collection of homo-erotic verse on both personal and broader social themes. The book is in three parts. The first opens with formal poems about key figures in past gay culture, whom Woods implicitly connects with aspects of contemporary life. The second part consists of twelve-line poems on themes progressing from desire, through consummation, to loss and the renewal of desire. The third part contains mainly longer, narrative poems in a variety of forms, exploring themes of masculinity and power, love and hatred, youth and ageing. May I Say Nothing integrates his celebrations of male physicality into a context of repression and violence. The victory is in the fact that the beauty of the male body survives the questionable causes it is expected to serve.
