Publisher Comments:

One of the world's best-known political figures shares stories that reveal the humanity and indomitable spirit of ordinary people caught up in extraordinary events
-- Gerry Adams's first collection of fiction tells stories full of hope and humor

The moving accounts of the fictional characters in these 18 short stories are set against the political turmoil of Gerry Adams's native Belfast. His tales display desperation (in "Monday Morning", in which the characters struggle with life on the dole) and poignant humor (in "Of Mice and Men", a group of political prisoners holds a mock trial for a mouse).
