Description Nora Webster de Colm Toibin:

From one of contemporary literature's most acclaimed and beloved authors comes this magnificent new novel set in a small town in Ireland in the 1960s, where a fiercely compelling, too-young widow and mother of four moves from grief, fear, and longing to unexpected discovery. Toibin's portrayal of the intricacy and drama of ordinary lives brings to mind of the work of Alice Munro. Set in Wexford, Ireland, and in breathtaking Ballyconnigar by the sea, Colm Toibin's tour de force eighth novel introduces the formidable, memorable Nora Webster. Widowed at 40, with four children and not enough money, Nora has lost the love of her life, Maurice, the man who rescued her from the stifling world she was born into. Wounded and self-centred from grief and the need to provide for her family, she struggles to be attentive to her children's needs and their own difficult loss. In masterfully detailing the intimate lives of one small family, Toibin has given us a vivid portrait of a time and an intricately woven tapestry of lives in a small town where everyone knows everyone's business, and where well-meaning gestures often have unforeseen consequences. Toibin has created one of contemporary fiction's most memorable female characters, one who has the strength and depth of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler. In "Nora Webster," Colm Toibin is writing at the height of his powers. COLM TOIBIN is the award-winning author of seven previous internationally acclaimed novels, including the Booker finalist "The Blackwater Lightship"- "The Master," winner of the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and Le Prix du meilleur livre etranger, and the "Los Angeles Times" Book Prize for Fiction- "Brooklyn," winner of the Costa Novel Award, and finalist for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and soon to be a major motion picture- and The "Testament of Mary," a finalist for the Man Booker Prize. His two acclaimed short story collections are "The Empty Family" and "Mothers and Sons." He mainly lives in Dublin, Ireland..
