BROOKLYN by Colm Toibin, 2009. Cover says this book was “Twice shortlisted for the Booker Prize”, whatever that means. This man wrote THE MASTER which I have yet to read, and he has written several other books which I’ve never read. I am SURE to read his other books though, since I enjoy his writing style. This is the story of a young, Irish woman named Eilis Lacey who was born in Ireland, but she can’t find a decent job there so ends up moving to Brooklyn NY to work and live. It’s well written, I’ll give you that!
NOTE: This was a good book, but not a GREAT book!
