Brooklyn Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book gripped me from the first to the last word. Toibin knows how to turn a story on an invisible needle, and to make a reader care deeply about each character. The heart behind the story is the heart, I suspect, of Toibin himself, and its insight, intelligence and sympathy imbue the story with the kind of literary compassion that creates something you might call eternal.
