Description - Irish Famine by Colm Toibin
This book will allow the reader to understand the complex way in which the fragmentary past is both available to us, and yet distant from us. We get those insights from Toibin's brilliant short overview and from a rich collection of documents - government papers, recipes, journalism, letters, statistics and personal statements, all linked so the book can be read as a whole.
