Inventory : A Family Portrait of Derry's Troubled Past Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Astonishing... A marvellous poetic reminder that every place is a universe of magical possibility to the perceptive mind' Damian Le Bas, author of The Stopping Places A smuggler and a deserter, Darran Anderson's grandfathers skirted the Second World War on the fringes of legality.

His father survived the height of the political violence in Northern Ireland and Darran himself came of age during the final years of the Troubles before leaving his hometown to find a way to exist in the world. But when another young man in his family disappears, Darran is brought back to Derry.

Walking the banks of the River Foyle, he starts on a search for what has been lost.

A portrait of a city, a biography of a family, a record of the objects that make up a life, Inventory offers a vital new perspective on a troubled history.
