Reviews

"This is some of Toibin's most beautiful and heart-stopping writing. The story 'The Street' is one of the great love stories of our time, gay or straight."--Edmund White, author of "City Boy"
"The work of a supreme writer who only improves."--"The Times" (U.K.)
"A collection that will only further fuel Toibin's ascent through English fiction."--"The Independent" (UK)
"["The Empty Family"] reconfirms his mastery of the short story.... Toibin raised his profile with the exquisitely bittersweet "Brooklyn", and this collection is every bit as rich... Likely to rank with the best story collections of the year."--"Kirkus" (starred review)
