In the captivating stories that make up The Empty Family Colm Toibin delineates with a tender and unique sensibility lives of unspoken or unconscious longing, of individuals, often willingly, cast adrift from their history.

From the young Pakistani immigrant who seeks some kind of permanence in a strange town to the Irish woman reluctantly returning to Dublin and discovering a city that refuses to acknowledge her long absence each of Toibin s stories manage to contain whole worlds: stories of fleeing the past and returning home, of family threads lost and ultimately regained. Exquisite .The chief reason to read these stories is the peculiar power of Colm Toibin s prose Telegraph Astonishingly precise, depicting complex and conflicted states of mind with rare clarity Observer Beautifully observed Sunday Times.
