Master (Toibin)

The Master
Colm Toibin, 2004
Simon & Schuster
352 pp.
ISBN-13: 9780743250412

Summary
Like Michael Cunningham in The Hours, Colm Toibin captures the extraordinary mind and heart of a great writer. Beautiful and profoundly moving, The Master tells the story of a man born into one of America's first intellectual families who leaves his country in the late nineteenth century to live in Paris, Rome, Venice, and London among privileged artists and writers.

In stunningly resonant prose, Tóibín captures the loneliness and the hope of a master of psychological subtlety whose forays into intimacy inevitably failed those he tried to love. The emotional intensity of this portrait is riveting. (From the publisher.)

Toibin is also the author of Brooklyn (2009) and Mothers and Sons, a collection of stories (2008).
