A broad and beautifully worked canvas . . . An imaginative, deeply felt and evocative tale
A daring, imaginative feat; the world it conjures is at once familiar and strange, and strangely moving. A splendid first novel
This is a strong and moving work of fiction about the hard truths of changing one's life. Colm Tóibín, like his characters, never says too much and never lets us grow too comfortable. A grand achievement
Colm Tóibín writes prose of a heartbreaking beauty.
