9780143122524: Albert Nobbs: A Novella

Long out of print, George Moore's classic novella returns just in time for the major motion picture starring Glenn Close as a woman disguised as a man in nineteenth-century Ireland.

Set in a posh hotel in nineteenth-century Dublin, Albert Nobbs is the story of an unassuming waiter hiding a shocking secret. Forced one night to share his bed with an out-of-town laborer, Albert Nobbs' carefully constructed facade nearly implodes when the stranger disovers his true identity-that he's actually a woman. Forced by this revelation to look himself in the mirror, Albert sets off in a desperate pursuit of companionship and love, a search he's unwilling to abandon so long as he's able to preserve his fragile persona at the same time. A tale of longing and romance, Albert Nobbs is a moving and startlingly frank gender-bending tale about the risks of being true to oneself. With a foreword by Glenn Close.

About the Author:

George Moore was born in Ireland in 1852. At the age of eighteen, following the death of his father, he ran off to Paris to study painting. Immersed in Parisian café society, he mingled with many great artists of the time, but ultimately shifted his ambitions toward writing, struggling to become a poet and playwright. Only after leaving Paris for London did Moore establish himself as a published writer, and in 1894, he found both critical praise and commercial success with his masterwork, the realist novel Esther Waters. He wrote about ten novels in addition to numerous essays and short stories before his death in 1933.
