Irish Rebel: John Devoy and America's Fight for Ireland's Freedomby Terry Golway
Irish Rebel profiles Irishman John Devoy, who came to the United States in exile in 1871, where he pursued a life of activism that garnered tremendous financial and moral support within the U.S. for the undying cause in his homeland.
“The Devoy story, in Terry Golway's hands, combines wide scholarship and adventure: it reads like a novel. Get a comfortable chair when you read this book: you won't be able to out it down.” Frank McCourt
“Terry Golway has produced a well-researched biography of a man whose life has hitherto been given too little attention.” David Murray, The New Times Book Review
“Terry Golway tells the story of this exceptional man with affection and a deft narrative sense. In an era of publishing in which America is rediscovering its Irishness, this book will charm and enlighten readers.” Thomas Keneally, author of Schindler's List
