    Story
    (111)

    It is Enniscorthy in the southeast of Ireland in the early 1950s. Eilis Lacey is one among many of her generation who cannot find work at home. Thus when a job is offered in America, it is clear to everyone that she must go. Eilis heads for unfamiliar Brooklyn to a crowded boarding house. Slowly, the pain of parting is buried beneath the rhythms of her new life - until she begins to realize that she has found a sort of happiness.

    Story
    What would have made Brooklyn better?

    If a woman had written this book it is obvious that the real feelings would have been easily clarified. Men should never write books about women.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Colm Tóibín again?

    Probably not.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kirsten Potter?

    Kristen Potter is very good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Brooklyn?

    The constant inabllity to make a decision.


    Any additional comments?

    Colm needs to write about men I'm sure a good topic matter would come more natural.

    Longing, book three in the Bailey Flanigan Series, picks up where Learning ended. After a long and lonely silence from Cody Coleman, Bailey Flanigan becomes closer to her one-time Hollywood co-star, Brandon Paul. Nights on the town in New York City and long talks on the balcony of Brandon's Malibu Beach home make Bailey dizzy with new feelings and cause her to wonder if her days with Cody are over forever.
