BOOKS I LIKED
By "the famous norteamerican woman's writer"


MOTHERS AND SONS. Colm Tóibin

" Colm Tóibin is an Irish novelist who explores the theme of people not wanting to being known, even to themselves. As author of five novels (including 'The Heather Blazing' and 'The Master'), this is his first book of sort stories and it continues his theme of alienation. The writing is brilliant and descriptive with his tales set in Ireland and Spain (when he lived in Barcelona for a time). The reader will not find a happy resolution in this stories but of mothers and sons not connecting, not reaching out to the other. His characters are fascinating and diverse but not heroic on a interpersonal basis. The reader will read these tales over nine nights but not in one sitting ".
