The writer and investigative journalist Patrick Radden Keefe, a staff writer at The New Yorker and a contributor to publications such as Slate and The New York Review of Books, has written an impressive and chilling book that deals with one of the most difficult periods in the Northern Irish conflict. It is a reconstruction of the murder of Jean McConville, a widow and mother, considered by the Republicans to be an informer working with the British. The book, entitled Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland, was shortlisted for the National Book Award, and won the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Orwell Prize. In conversation with Ricardo Corredor Cure.
