Product description


'This book is a real pleasure to read. It takes us from the H-Blocks of Long Kesh, and the prisoners who struggled and starved within them, to the corridors of power in Whitehall and Stormont and examines the thread that connects between them.' Liam Clarke, Sunday Times 'Richard O'Rawe's "Afterlives" is a searingly honest account of how his revelations about the 1981 hunger strike created a storm of controversy in the republican community. It is a brave, lucid, genuine account of someone prepared to speak truth to new powers in the land.' Henry McDonald, Guardian '...a compelling, powerful and virtually incontestable case that in the summer of 1981 Gerry Adams and those around him thwarted a proposed settlement of the IRA/INLA hunger strikes ... This is probably one of the most important stories to come out of the Troubles in Northern Ireland because it helps explain how and why they came to an end in a way that is revelatory, deeply disturbing, unprecedented and convincing.' Ed Moloney, author of A Secret History of the IRA and Voices From the Grave.
