Patrick Radden Keefe’s Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland (Doubleday, $28.95) begins with the kidnap and murder of a mother of ten by members of the IRA. Keefe uses this incident as a jumping off point to tell the larger story of the violent confl ict that wracked the country during the Troubles, in the 1970s and ‘80s. Keefe also introduces the glamorous Dolours Price, who joined the IRA after her attempts at non-violent protest were met with hatred and bloodshed. Responsible for some of the high-profile bombings in London, Price became the face of the radical chic IRA fighter, close to Gerry Adams and other political fi gures in Sinn Féin. Altogether, the events in Say Nothing put a human face to the yearslong struggle in Northern Ireland, showing the extreme brutality of both sides in the conflict.
