Silver Linings by Martin Fletcher
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Northern Ireland has become synonymous with conflict, terrorism and tortuous efforts to forge peace. But what is life there really like? Martin Fletcher presents a portrait of a Northern Ireland of lakes, rivers and mountains, where customs, traditions and old-world charm survive. He reveals an incredibly resourceful province which has given the world not just bombs and bullets, but the "Titanic", the tyre and the tractor, a dozen American presidents, two Prime Ministers of New Zealand and a Hindu god. He describes a God-fearing people, a land of terrible beauty, a battleground of good and evil, a province populated by saints and sinners that has yet to be rendered bland by the forces of modernity.

Author Biography

Martin Fletcher arrived in Northern Ireland in 1997 after seven years as Washington Correspondent of THE TIMES. His previous book, ALMOST HEAVEN was shortlisted for the 1999 Thomas Cook Travel Book Award. He is now European Correspondent of THE TIMES.
