Author(s): Edna O'Brien
A collection in which, a woman walks the streets of Manhattan and contemplates with exquisite longing the precarious affair she has embarked on, amidst the grandeur and cacophony of the cityscape; and a young Irish girl and her mother are thrilled to be invited to visit the glamorous Coughlan's but find they leave disappointed.
The acclaimed new collection of short stories by award-winning author Edna O'Brien, full of her trademark lyricism, compassion and insight.
Since her debut novel, The Country Girls, Edna O'Brien has written over twenty works of fiction along with biographies of James Joyce and Lord Byron. She is the recipient of many awards including the Irish PEN Lifetime achievement Award, the American National Art's Gold Medal and the Ulysses Medal. Born and raised in the west of Ireland she has lived in London for many years.
