An intimate and compelling portrayal of the worst famine in Western European history and the greatest catastrophe in Ireland’s history. The Irish famine left one million dead and another million emigrated to America and the UK within a decade. Told through the testimonies of four key contemporaries, Enda Delaney’s book conveys the immediacy of the unfolding disaster as never before. His four protagonists offer film makers a way to make the events intimate through the interwoven story of their four lives.
