  • A profoundly gifted world writer

    Sebastian Barry, Guardian, Books of the Year
  • Sumptous ... In the hands of a master of Toibin's gifts, this deceptively slim memoir expands out into something far greater than you might expect. In what amounts to not much more than a long magazine article, he creates a sweeping, lyrical portrait of the small-town idiosyncrasies, natural landscapes and family histories in southeast Ireland on which his novels have drawn for decades.
