Long Island by Colm Toibin


***Published – 23rd May 2024***

The sequel to the prize-winning, bestselling novel Brooklyn. A novel of enormous wit and profound emotional resonance from one of the world’s finest writers. In Colm Toibin’s masterful new novel, we are reunited with Eilis Lacey, the heroine of Brooklyn, twenty years on, in the 1970s, living with her husband, Tony Fiorello, and her children in a house in Long Island, rather too close to her Fiorello in-laws.

A shocking piece of news propels Eilis back to Ireland, to a world she thought she had long left behind and to ways of living, and loving, she thought she had lost.
