"Eamon Redmond is a judge in Ireland's high court, a completely legal creature who is just beginning to discover how painfully unconnected he is from other human beings. With effortless fluency, Colm Tóibín reconstructs the history of Eamon's relationships--with his father, his first "girl," his wife, and the children who barely know him--and he writes about Eamon's affection for the Irish coast with such painterly skill that the land itself becomes a character."--Publisher's website.

Lyrical, nostalgic, absolutely beautiful writing... the kind of book that I want to bury myself in and have it go on and on. I'm going to hate coming to the end of Eamon's story.
