"A compelling characterization of a woman caught between two worlds... A fine and touching novel, persuasive proof of Toibin's ever-increasing skills and range." -- "Booklist" (starred review) "A quiet masterpiece." -- "The Express" (U.K.) "Reading Tï¿½ibï¿½n is like watching an artist paint one small stroke after another until suddenly the finished picture emerges to shattering effect." -- The Times Literary Supplement (U.K.) "Reading Toibin is like watching an artist paint one small stroke after another until suddenly the finished picture emerges to shattering effect." -- The Times Literary Supplement (U.K.) "A quiet masterpiece." -- The Express (U.K.) "Toibin's prose is as elegant in its simplicity as it is complex in the emotions it evokes." -- The New York Times Magazine "Colm Toibin leads a generation of Irish novelists... His generation's most gifted writer of love's complicated, contradictory power." -- Los Angeles Times "[A] masterly tale... There is not a sentence or a thought out of place." -- Irish Times "A beautifully rendered portrait of Brooklyn and provincial Ireland in the 1950s... Toibin writes about women more convincingly, I think, than any other living, male novelist." -- Zoe Heller, author of The Believers "A classical coming-of-age story, pure, unsensationalized, quietly profound." -- Pam Houston, O, the Oprah Magazine
