PATRICK RADDEN KEEFE is a staff writer at The New Yorker and the author of The Snakehead and Chatter. His work has also appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Slate, New York, and The New York Review of Books. He received the 2014 National Magazine Award for Feature Writing, for his story “A Loaded Gun,” was a finalist for the National Magazine Award for Reporting in 2015 and 2016, and is also the recipient of an Eric and Wendy Schmidt Fellowship at the New America Foundation and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
SAY NOTHING presents a searing chronicle of the lengths that people are willing to travel in pursuit of political ideals and the ways in which societies react in the aftermath of a long and bloody conflict. Richly atmospheric, Keefe’s portrayal of Belfast and the players on both sides of its turmoil offers a masterful and transporting account of passions, betrayals, vengeance, and anguish. Populated with dark and dirty secret operations, daring prison escapes, assassination squads, betrayals, and sacrifices, SAY NOTHING offers an unbelievable true crime story.
