About Brooklyn\, The New Yorker says\, “Tóibín creates a narrative of remarkable power …. [and] leaves us with a renewed understanding that to emigrate is to become a foreigner in two places at once.” He is also author of the story collections Mothers and Sons and The Empty Family and several nonfiction books\, including recently New Ways to Kill Your Mother and On Elizabeth Bishop. His work has been translated into more than 30 languages.
