"Few could quarrel with the publisher's description of this as a classic." --Books Ireland

"So honest, so human and so readable." --Irish Times

McCann's account of what it is like to grow up a Catholic in a Northern Irish ghetto--first published in 1974--quickly became a classic account of the feelings generated by British rule. The author was at the center of events in Derry which first brought Northern Ireland to world attention. He witnessed the gradual transformation of the civil rights movement from a mild campaign for "British Democracy" to an all-out military assault on the British state.
