So many literary figures, allusions in this novel. If possible, I wanted to find the source of “ say nothing.

Crazeedi So awesome ❤ 2mo
BethM I know Of Irish Blood is fiction but I feel like “say nothing” has to predate 1975? 2mo

My grandfather was born in Belfast, though he came to the US well before the timeframe of this book. This is FASCINATING. (Also harrowing, but I can‘t look away.) #saynothing #patrickraddenkeefe #northernireland #truecrime #irishrepublicanarmy #ira #civilunrest

CSeydel I devoured this one! So much I didn‘t know about all that. 12mo
actualdisneyprincess @MallenNC it‘s amazing omg. 12mo
actualdisneyprincess @CSeydel I took an Irish Drama class my senior year of college, so I had a limited exposure to The Troubles through the lens of plays written about them - this goes so way beyond that that I‘m just 😱😨 about it all!! How scary!!! 12mo
