Product description


Tayar brings to this beautifully woven family reunion a heart filled with empathy and compassion for her characters --Alfred Garrotto, author of The Wisdom of Les Miserables

Readers of Tayar's very readable memoir, How Shall We Sing?, will see the germs of the present novel in the earlier book. In both books the writing is vivid, but in Island of Dreams skilful story-telling is combined with psychological depth. --Paul Xuereb, Sunday Times of Malta

The author has a controlled use of language, detachment and a sense of humour. The psychology of the characters and the social context of their community are beautifully depicted. --Dominique Seytre, Journalist

About the Author

Born in Malta and raised in Israel and Australia, Aline P'nina Tayar is the author of "How Shall We Sing?: A Mediterranean Journey Through a Jewish Family" (Pan Macmillan/Picador). Her home is in Bath, but her work as a conference interpreter takes her often to Brussels." Island of Dreams" was short-listed for the Outbound Best Novel Prize 2011 and was runner-up for the Harry Bowling Prize 2012
