A Memoir

by Tim Pat Coogan
£8.99   paperback  Orion Publishing Co (2009)

A Memoir by Tim Pat Coogan From the personal to the political, this is the much-awaited memoir from Tim Pat Coogan.
 
Ireland's best-known journalist, broadcaster, historian and bestselling biographer Tim Pat Coogan has not only reported the news - he's been the news. Through the Irish Press, where he served as editor for twenty years, he is renowned for bringing social and political change to 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 - if not controversially - on all aspects of Irish current affairs.
 
From personal to political, his revelatory memoir gives genuine insight into the life and high-profile career of a man at the centre of Irish politics and society.

"an instructive prism through which to view some aspects of the evolution of post-independence Ireland... the narrative flows easily and enthusiastically. It bespeaks love of country and love of life and it is punctuated with the sharp, dry humour that characterises the man."
(Conor Brady, The Irish Times)
