Brian Keenan went to Beirut in 1985 for a change of scene from his native Belfast. He became headline news when he was kidnapped by fundamentalist Shi'ite militiamen and held in the suburbs of Beirut for the next four and a half years. For much of that time he was shut off from all news and contact with anyone other than his jailers and, later, his fellow hostages, amongst them John McCarthy.

"The scope and grandeur of his reflections is supported by the concrete detail of his narrative. It is a moving and remarkable triumph." - Sebastian Faulks, Independent on Sunday
