"Mothers and Sons" is a sensitive and beautifully written meditation on the dramas surrounding this most elemental of relationships. Psychologically intricate and emotionally incisive, each finely wrought story teases out the delicate and difficult strands woven between mothers and sons. This is an acute, masterful and moving collection that confirms Toibin as a great prose stylist of our time. 'Colm Toibin is a writer of extraordinary emotional clarity. Each of the nine stories is a snapshot of a point of crisis ...Toibin perfectly understands the instantaneous nature of the ideal short story; the sense that the pen is going straight into a major vein. These are beautiful stories, beautifully crafted' - Kate Saunders, "Literary Review". 'The last story in this excellent collection is a superbly powerful tale of betrayal and desertion. Quintessential Toibin' - "Spectator". 'Moving ...beautifully captured moments of longing and loss ...Toibin is a subtle, intelligent and deeply felt writer' - "Guardian" 'By turns surprising and illuminating, always beautifully written, "Mothers and Sons" places Toibin in the front rank of modern Irish fiction ...It may not be going too far to suggest Irish fiction has found its first Master of the new century' - "Scotland on Sunday".
