Souls: A Portrait of Belfast
by Jo Fredell Higgins
I arrived in Belfast, Northern Ireland in autumn 1979. I wanted to discover why the Troubles continued and what the psyche of the Irishmen and women was. From the Markets to Stranmillis, from the Ligonel area to the Shankill and Falls Road, I spoke with residents to ascertain their thoughts, hopes, and dreams. I spoke with the Lord Mayor of Belfast as well as the charwomen at St. Malachy's. I shivered in the frost of a December morning and strolled through the Botanic Gardens as Spring arrived once again. This memoir is a portrait about Irish history and family life in Belfast. It is now thirty years later, and political and social progress has been made. Join me on this yearly journey, 1979–1980, as the people and institutions of Belfast record their impressions and their dazzling dreams.
In Souls: A Portrait of Belfast, author Jo Fredell Higgins paints a moving portrait of everyday life in Belfast. Written in an evocative, poetic journalistic style, Souls is sure to delight and inform readers from Ireland and around the world about this volatile yet vibrant land and its relevance to our lives today.
