Description

With her inimitable gift for describing the workings of the heart and mind, Edna O'Brien introduces us to a vivid new cast of restless, searching people who - whether in the Irish countryside or London or New York - remind us of our own humanity. A librarian waits in the lobby of a posh Dublin hotel - expecting to meet a celebrated poet while reflecting on the great love who disappointed her. Irish workers dream of becoming millionaires in London, but long for their quickly changing homeland - exiles in both places. A searing anatomy of class is seen through a little girl's eyes. In language that is always bold and vital, Edna O'Brien pays tribute to the universal forces that rule our lives.
