Brian Rowan has been reporting from the front line of the conflict and subsequent peace negotiations in Northern Ireland for more than thirty years. In Living with Ghosts, he contemplates the terror and trauma that would take decades to grapple with.
In Living With Ghosts renowned veteran journalist Brian Rowan retraces his steps through Northern Ireland’s conflictÂ years, as he bravely delves into the darkness of those times. His story takes us beyond the often strict boundaries of theÂ news into the very real dilemmas and fears behind its scenes.
In his journalistic career Rowan walked the thinnest of lines, where morals and principles were blurred, and as a resultÂ his mind became tortured. This book is an explanation, not a confession.
He goes deep into his contacts with the IRA, the loyalistÂ organisations, MI5, Special Branch, the army and the manyÂ other players in the conflict period. And he joins the dots on a path out of ‘war’ in a place that has not yet found peace ofÂ mind.
Rowan thinks and writes inside a moral maze, and in this book he invites us into his nightmares of remembering andÂ to times he will never forget.
Living with Ghosts is a moving and deeply personal account of one man’s doubts and decisions, and the challenges ofÂ reporting a war on his doorstep.
