Author(s): Evelyn Conlon
A novel by esteemed Irish author Evelyn Conlon. Friendship, love, isolation, and one woman's quiet bravery are at the heart of this story from one of Ireland's most distinctive and energetic voices.
Set during the recent past, a period of unprecedented self-examination and rapidly changing social values in Ireland, this novel reflects a time of change, disruption, and progress, charting the journey taken by a tightly-woven group. By turns witty and profound, the novel skillfully switches between straight narrative and a chain of lively, intimate correspondence.
Conlon is one of Ireland's best-loved and most accomplished writers, as well as an important essayist and social commentator.
A Glassful of Letters was originally published in 1998 to strong reviews: the Irish Independent called it "Engaging and bursting with untrammelled humanity."
