One of the most unforgettable characters in contemporary literature ("Pittsburgh Post-Gazette"), Eilis Lacey has come of age in small-town Ireland in the hard years following World War Two. When an Irish priest from Brooklyn offers to sponsor Eilis in America, she decides she must go, leaving her fragile mother and her charismatic sister behind.
Eilis finds work in a department store on Fulton Street, and when she least expects it, finds love. Tony, who loves the Dodgers and his big Italian family, slowly wins her over with patient charm. But just as Eilis begins to fall in love, devastating news from Ireland threatens the promise of her future.
Author Colm Toibin is his generation s most gifted writer of love s complicated, contradictory power ("Los Angeles Times"). Written with mesmerizing power and skill ("The Boston Globe"), "Brooklyn" is a triumph One of those magically quiet novels that sneak up on readers and capture their imaginations ("USA TODAY")."
