35 years on, Bobby Sands' 66-day hunger strike as a political prisoner in the Maze Prison, Northern Ireland, remains a defining event of 20th century Irish history. Brendan Byrne's Bobby Sands: 66 Days is a significant attempt to collate and distill the events of this fatal protest and the swirling political and societal contexts that surrounded it. Structured around excerpts from Sands' personal diary, it is a comprehensive, balanced and insightful exploration of the man, his life and his death.
