Widowed in her forties, with four children and not enough money, Nora has lost the love of her life, Maurice, the man who rescued her from the stifling world to which she was born. And now she fears she may be drawn back into it. Wounded, strong-willed, clinging to secrecy in a tiny community where everyone knows your business, Nora is drowning in her own sorrow and blind to the suffering of her young sons, who have lost their father. Yet she has moments of stunning empathy and kindness, and when she begins to sing again, after decades, she finds solace, engagement, a haven-- herself.

Book Summary:

La nueva novela del maestro de la literatura irlandesa. Colm Tóibín, autor de Brooklyn y El testamento de María, crea un extraordinario fresco de la Irlanda de finales de los años sesenta y comienzos de los setenta. Dicen que el dolor nos hace más fuertes, pero poco se cuenta del camino que hay que andar para armarse y seguir viviendo después de una pérdida que cambia para siempre nuestra manera de ver el mundo. Nora es una mujer de cuarenta años que ha perdido a Maurice, el hombre que fue su marido y el padre de sus cuatro hijos. Viuda y con escasos recursos económicos, inmersa en el aire provinciano de una pequeña ciudad irlandesa a finales de los años sesenta, la mujer usa su inteligencia para mantener el hogar y gobernar ese amor que aún le queda y las emociones ambiguas que van asomando sin pedir permiso. Lo que nos ofrece Colm Tóibín en esta ocasión es mucho más que un retrato de cuerpo entero: Nora crece en cada página de esta espléndida novela, cambia según el momento en que el lector se acerca a ella, incluso se diluye a ratos para luego volver con más fuerza. Maurice también está ahí, con los amigos y los hijos, y juntos forman un paisaje humano iluminado por la compasión y la ternura. Nora Webster: una mujer, una novela y una muestra del talento de uno de los mejores autores del siglo XXI. «A veces, nos cruzamos con ellos, con los que nos han dejado, los que ya no están. Llevan consigo algo que nosotros aun no conocemos... Es un misterio.» Colm Tóibín Reseña: «La novela de Tóibín avanza y la protagonista experimenta un proceso imperceptible pero irreversible. [...] Menudo maestro, el irlandés, a la hora de retratar estados de ánimo sin explicitarlos.» Eva Piquer, Diari Ara «Una historia doméstica que capta el misterio de cada uno de nosotros.» Jennifer Egan, The New York Times Book Review «Colm Toibin vuelve al territorio que exploró en la aclamada Brooklyn pero esta vez se queda a este lado del Atlántico. En Nora Webster adopta un estilo engañosamente discreto para contar la historia de su propia madre, una mujer que queda viuda en la Irlanda de los sesenta y aprende a redefinirse.» Begoña Gómez, La Vanguardia Cultura/s

Book Summary:

The desire to engage and confront traumatic subjects was a facet of Irish literature for much of the twentieth century. Yet, just as Irish society has adopted a more direct and open approach to the past, so too have Irish authors evolved in their response to, and literary uses of, trauma. In Trauma and Recovery in the Twenty-First-Century Irish Novel, Costello-Sullivan considers the ways in which the Irish canon not only represents an ongoing awareness of trauma as a literary and cultural force, but also how this representation has shifted since the end of the twentieth and beginning of the twenty-first century. While earlier trauma narratives center predominantly on the role of silence and the individual and/or societal suffering that traumas induce, twenty-first-century Irish narratives increasingly turn from just the recognition of traumatic experiences toward exploring and representing the process of healing and recovery both structurally and narratively. Through a series of keenly observed close readings, Costello-Sullivan explores the work of Colm Tóibín, John Banville, Anne Enright, Emma Donohue, Colum McCann, and Sebastian Barry. In highlighting the power of narrative to amend and address memory and trauma, Costello-Sullivan argues that these works reflect a movement beyond merely representing trauma toward also representing the possibility of recovery from it.

Book Summary:

The Fictions of Dreams explores the close connection between the narrative nature of dreams and the narrative devices employed in literature and creative writing. The book is unique in its confluential approach, linking the fictions of dreams with literary fictions and case studies which illuminate the centrality of dream analysis in therapeutic work. Dreams and literature are closely related. The dream's essence lies in its narrative facility. Dreams are autobiographical fictions which tell the story of the dreamer's life history, her insertion in transgenerational family themes, and her ethnic and cultural identity. In that sense dreams are psycho-social depositories and makers, not unlike what can be found in world literature: the recreation of interiority and historicity of a given time period. The interconnected worlds of dreaming and fiction writing tend to employ the same narrative devices: the memorial mode (Patrick Modiano), multi-temporality (Gabriel Garcia Marquez), poeisis (Kafka, Ted Hughes, Colm Toibin), historical consciousness (Irene Nemirowsky), and 'infinite connectivity' (Patrick White).

Book Summary:

Consolation has always played an uncomfortable part in the literary history of loss. But in recent decades its affective meanings and ethical implications have been recast by narratives that appear at first sight to foil solace altogether. Illuminating this striking archive, Discrepant Solace considers writers who engage with consolation not as an aesthetic salve but as an enduring problematic, one that unravels at the centre of emotionally challenging works of late twentieth- and twenty-first-century fiction and life-writing. The book understands solace as a generative yet conflicted aspect of style, where microelements of diction, rhythm, and syntax capture consolation's alternating desirability and contestation. With a wide-angle lens on the contemporary scene, David James examines writers who are rarely considered in conversation, including Sonali Deraniyagala, Colson Whitehead, Cormac McCarthy, W.G. Sebald, Doris Lessing, Joan Didion, J. M. Coetzee, Marilynne Robinson, Julian Barnes, Helen Macdonald, Ian McEwan, Colm Tóibín, Kazuo Ishiguro, Denise Riley, and David Grossman. These figures overturn critical suppositions about consolation's kinship with ideological complaisance, superficial mitigation, or dubious distraction, producing unsettling perceptions of solace that shape the formal and political contours of their writing. Through intimate readings of novels and memoirs that explore seemingly indescribable experiences of grief, trauma, remorse, and dread, James demonstrates how they turn consolation into a condition of expressional possibility without ever promising us relief. He also supplies vital traction to current conversations about the stakes of thinking with contemporary writing to scrutinize affirmative structures of feeling, revealing unexpected common ground between the operations of literary consolation and the urgencies of cultural critique. Discrepant Solace makes the close reading of emotion crucial to understanding the work literature does in our precarious present.
