Long Island by Colm Tóibin Chosen for Oprah’s Book Club

Long Island

Long Island by Colm Tóibin has been chosen by Oprah Winfrey as the next title for her famous Book Club.

The novel continues the story of Eilis Lacey, who left Ireland for New York City in the 1950s and is now trapped in an unhappy marriage to Tony Fiorello, the Italian plumber she met in Tóibin’s 2009 book Brooklyn. Set in the 1970s, the new book begins with Eilis facing the devastating news that Tony has made another man’s wife pregnant and that the woman’s husband plans to leave the child with her.

“I had so many mixed emotions reading this novel,” Winfrey said in a statement. “I was captivated. Tóibin builds the story around a woman whose life changes seemingly overnight with the news of her husband’s infidelity. It opens the door to her own secrets, grappling with choices she made long ago, urging her to break free from the silences she built around her life. A wonderful page-turner to start your summer reading.”
