Product Details


Advance praise for A Farther Shore

“A rollicking good read, replete with murder, noble deeds, hilarious mistakes, treachery, and chicanery, from the pen of a nonjudgmental, gifted writer who is a decent, honorable leader, Gerry Adams.”
—Malachy McCourt, author of A Monk Swimming

“The Irish peace process had to overcome decades—if not centuries—of hate, mistrust, and oppression. Its success was a true triumph of the human spirit. No one did more to make it happen than Gerry Adams. A Farther Shore tells you why. It is gripping, moving, and on the money.”
—Congressman Peter King, co-chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee for Irish Affairs

“The refusal to acknowledge the roots of conflict guarantees its perpetuation, whether in Ireland, in Iraq, or on our own shores. Thankfully there are voices—and Gerry Adams will always be among them—who are prepared to penetrate the silence. A Farther Shore is a memoir of a place and a time rather than of a man; Adams, no fool, knows that his story is not the only one. That he has the bravery to pull aside the silence is just one of his gifts. That he has offered us a history with hope is yet another.”
—Colum McCann, author of Dancer: A Novel
