COLM TOIBIN: MAN IMAGINES MANN
Sponsored by The Rathbones Folio Prize
From the bestselling author of Brooklyn, Colm Toibin's first collection of poetry explores travel, sexuality, religion and family.
For Mary, her son has been lost to the world, and now, living in exile and in fear, she tries to piece together the memories of the events that led to her son's brutal death. To her he was a vulnerable figure, surrounded by men who could not be trusted, living in a time of turmoil and change.
Part travelogue, part autobiography, part historical document, this is Colm Toibin at his finest and most insightful.
