So Gail found this old book on a stall on Avenue Reforma in Mexico City, and the friendly bookseller gave it her for free. It was one of very few that was in English and not by Dan Brown.
(Gail, we needn't tell them that you saw the title 'Wolf Tone' and thought it was about the 18th century 'father of Irish Republicanism', need we?)
Well I have had a quick read and find it quite stunning that the author Lawrence Goldman has apparently been forgotten. What a loss to the world! Such a perceptive novelist. I mean show me another serious writer who recognises the special qualities of the WFT....?
