The Dead RepublicDAISY
Henry Smart, his leg severed in an accident with a railway boxcar, crawls into the Utah desert to die, only to be discovered by John Ford, who's there shooting his latest Western. Ford decides to use Henry by turning his story - a boy volunteer at the GPO in 1916, a hitman for Michael Collins - into a film. Ten years later and back in Ireland, Henry is caught in a bomb blast and becomes a poster boy for the Provos, but finds that he will have other uses too, when the peace process begins in deadly secrecy. Sequel to "Oh, play that thing" (DC26405).
