There were several New York stories in my reading this year. Here’s another wonderful one. It evokes the time and place so well. I’m a great fan of an English writer of this 1950s period, Elizabeth Taylor, and Toibin has captured that understated style of hers beautifully. You may think very little happens, yet there are life-altering consequences. It’s the closest I’ll get to reading something of Taylor’s this year as I’ve read all she wrote! That made me very happy! I’ve read most of what Toibin has written, too, and he never disappoints. Enjoy.

The story of a young Irish woman who emigrates to New York circa 1950. What a writer!
