From the Publisher:

With her inimitable gift for describing the workings of the heart and mind, Edna O'Brien introduces us to a vivid new cast of restless, searching people who - whether in the Irish countryside or London or New York-remind us of our own humanity. A librarian waits in the lobby of a posh Dublin hotel - expecting to meet a celebrated poet while reflecting on the great love who disappointed her. Irish workers dream of becoming millionaires in London, but long for their quickly changing homeland - exiles in both places. A searing anatomy of class is seen through a little girl’s eyes. In language that is always bold and vital, Edna O'Brien pays tribute to the universal forces that rule our lives.

Author Bio
Edna O'Brien
Edna O'Brien was born in Tuamgraney, Ireland, and attended the Pharmaceutical College of England. Rather than pursue medical interests, however, she chose to write. Her work is known for its confessional, autobiographical tone; as she told Philip Roth in an interview for the New York Times: "I have depicted women in lonely, desperate, and often humiliated situations, very often the butt of men and almost always searching for an emotional experience that does not want to come. This is my territory--and that I know from hard-earned experience."

Praise

"Eleven stories in total bring literary lovers' rapt attention to this author's clear, immaculate style and her brilliant selection of detail, nimble plot construction, and astute character delineation." (starred review) - Brad Hooper 03/01/2011

"To read O'Brien is not only to succumb to her sibyl's vision of other people's fates, it's to fall under the spell of her singular, potent language, which clings to the tactile realities of another century's earthier, guiltier sensibility--to bogs and turf fires, to poverty and proud airs, lust and furtive passions." - Liesl Schillinger 05/15/2011
