Wounds by Fergal Keane

A Memoir of Love and War

By William Collins

Description

Trying to relate the kindly men and women of his childhood with the deeds made public long years after they died, Fergal Keane’s devastating history of a local murder asks, what is a terrorist? And how do people live with the act of killing? As those who pulled triggers, planted bombs and spied are long dead – as are their children – the bitterness of memory has faded in the towns where the violence and torture took place. Facing these people and their stories at last, ‘Wounds’ searches for a deeper sense of the personal history that made this colonial war, and how it initiated the beginning of the end of empire. A heartbreaking tale of the secrets of war, this journey is part of the story of all wars. Fergal Keane OBE was born in London and educated in Ireland. He is one of the BBC's most distinguished correspondents, having worked for the corporation in Northern Ireland, South Africa, Asia and the Balkans. He has been awarded a BAFTA and has been named reporter of the year on television and radio, winning honours from the Royal Television Society and the Sony Radio Awards. He has also been named Reporter of the Year in the Amnesty International Press Awards and won the James Cameron Prize and the Edward R. Murrow Award from the US Overseas Press Association.
