"Brilliant. . . . A book to be offered to anyone who savors some of the most accomplished and nuanced soundings contemporary fiction has to offer. . . . Tóibín's craft is immaculate."
— Pico Iyer, New York Times Book Review
"It's truly remarkable that a writer of Tóibín's great felicity, immense seriousness and general large awareness - a writer so naturally gifted as a novelist - can deliver short stories of such subtle empathy and brilliance. He's dazzling."
— Richard Ford
