Born into a middle-class family in 1930s Dublin, Tim Pat Coogan grew up against a background of highly charged political activity in Ireland. He went on to play a vital role in bringing the IRA/Sinn Fein to the peace talks table, and has always been uniquely placed to comment authoritatively on all aspects of Irish current affairs - as well as providing an understanding of the 'hidden Ireland' of the IRA. Both a bestselling biographer and a legendary journalist, Tim Pat Coogan has long created controversy with his forthright comments. Through the Irish Press, of which he was editor for twenty years, he is renowned for bringing about social and political change to Ireland. His memoir is long-awaited and reveals both the public and private lives of one of Ireland's most influential journalists.
