Literary Sojour Author Study: The Master by Colm Tóibín
Off the Beaten Path Bookstore, Wednesday, September 17 at 5:30pm
The master by Colm Tóibín Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 5:30pm

This distinguished Irish novelist boldly offers a fictional depiction of the last two decades of the life of the great god of American letters, Henry James. Toibin gives him ordinary human qualities, such as fear and loneliness and longing, in a shaping and shading process that has not been an easy task, even in the most thoughtful, scrupulously researched biography.
