9780140149869: Toibin Colm : South

In 1950, Katherine Proctor leaves Ireland and her family for Barcelona, determined to become a painter. There she meets Miguel, an anarchist veteran of the Spanish Civil War, and proceeds to build a life with him. But Katherine cannot escape her past, as Michael Graves, a fellow Irish émigré to Spain, forces her to re-examine all her relationships: to her lover, her art and the homeland she only thought she knew.

‘This is a strong and moving work of fiction about the hard truths of changing one’s life. Colm Tóibín, like his characters, never says too much and never lets us grow too comfortable. A grand achievement’ Don DeLillo

‘A broad and beautifully worked canvas . . . An imaginative, deeply felt and evocative tale’ Sunday Times

Product Description:

The first highly acclaimed novel from an "immensely gifted and accomplished writer" (The Washington Post), about an Irishwoman who creates a new life in post-war Spain.
In 1950, Katherine Proctor leaves Ireland for Barcelona, determined to escape her family and become a painter. There she meets Miguel, an anarchist veteran of the Spanish Civil War, and begins to build a life with him. But Katherine cannot escape her past, as Michael Graves, a fellow Irish emigre in Spain, forces her to reexamine all her relationships: to her lover, her art, and the homeland she only thought she knew.
The South is a novel of classic themes--of art and exile, and of the seemingly irreconcilable yearnings for love and freedom--to which Colm Toibin brings a new, passionate sensitivity.

Product Description:

A daring, imaginative feat; the world it conjures is at once familiar and strange, and strangely moving. A splendid first novel' John Banville
