Long Island

The Discovery Stage

In Long Island, the sequel to Brooklyn, published in 2009, we are reunited with Eilis Lacey 20 years on, in the 1970s, living with her husband, Tony Fiorello, and children on Long Island, rather too close to her Fiorello in-laws. A shocking piece of news propels Eilis back to Ireland, to a world she thought she had long left behind and to ways of living, and loving, she thought she had lost. He is the author of ten previous novels including The Master, Brooklyn, The Testament of Mary, and The Magician. He has been shortlisted for the Booker three times, won the Costa Novel Award, the Rathbones Folio Prize and is the current Laureate for Irish Fiction.
