On the heels of his breakout success, the bestselling and award-winning novel Brooklyn, Colm Tóoacute;ibíiacute;n returns with a stunning collection of new stories, written in prose as "elegant in its simplicity as it is complex in the emotions it evokes" ( The New York Times Magazine ).Critics praised Brooklyn as a “beautifully rendered portrait of Brooklyn and provincial Ireland in the 1950s." In The Empty Family, Tóoacute;ibíiacute;n has extended his imagination further, offering an incredible range of periods and characters-people linked by love, loneliness, desire—"the unvarying dilemmas of the human heart" ( The Observer, UK). In the breathtaking long story "The Street," Tóoacute;ibíiacute;n imagines a relationship between Pakistani workers in Barcelona-a taboo affair in a community ruled by obedience and silence. In "Two Women," an eminent and taciturn Irish set designer takes a job in her homeland, and must confront emotions she has long repressed. “Silence” is a brilliant historical set piece about Lady Gregory, who tells the writer Henry James a confessional story at a dinner party. Like Tóoacute;ibíiacute;n's collection Mothers and Sons, reviewed on the front page of The New York Times Book Review, The Empty Family will further cement Tóoacute;ibíiacute;n's status as "his generation’s most gifted writer of love's complicated, contradictory power" (Floyd Skloot, Los Angeles Times )."Reading Tóoacute;ibíiacute;n is like watching an artist paint one small stroke after another until suddenly the finished picture emerges to shattering effect." - The Times Literary Supplement (UK)
