JOHN FAHY was an Irish Roman Catholic priest, closely connected to Sinn Féin. His outspoken opinions led to conflict with both State and Church. Silenced by his bishop during the Irish Civil War, he spoke increasingly freely after 1924. Jim Madden tells his story in Fr John Fahy: Radical Republican and agrarian activist (1893-1969). The text is illustrated with reproductions of letters to and from Fahy, copies of newspaper articles, and a section of black-and-white photographs (Columba Press, £16.99 (£15.30); 978-1-85607-763-7).

 

NOTES from the House of the Dead, Fyodor Dostoevsky’s 1861 semi-autobiographical account of life in a Siberian labour camp, has been newly translated by Boris Jakim (Wm B. Eerdmans, £17.99 (£16.20); 978-0-8028-6647-9).
