Review

'Bleak and beautiful tales of motherhood, motherland and
betrayal'
-- Books of the Year, Sunday Telegraph

'Clarity and beautifully nuanced precision create his artistic
distance… sureness of touch' -- Spectator

'It may not be going too far to suggest Irish Fiction has found
its first Master of the new century’ -- Scotland on Sunday

'Tóibín is a writer of extraordinary emotional clarity...these are
beautiful stories, beautifully crafted' -- Kate Saunders, Literary Review

`All [the stories] share a miraculous density. Short but weighty,
they contain whole lives' -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett, Sunday Times

`Compelling... Tóibín is a master of the blind allies of desire...
Tóibín commands admiration and respect' -- The Times

`Moving... beautifully captured moments of longing and loss...
[Tóibín] is a subtle, intelligent and deeply felt writer' -- Guardian

`No one writes about loss like Tóibín' -- Time Out

‘Tóibín achieves his effects in scrupulously understated prose,
conveying psychological complexity in straightforward, very subtly rhythmic
language' -- Sunday Telegraph

‘Tóibín’s prose, as dry and detached as ever...packs a powerful
emotional charge’ -- Daily Mail

Guardian

'Outstanding... A restrained, absorbing collection'
