Description
"Author of the funniest outing scene in Irish letters—caught in a gay rights march taped for broadcast, our hero rushes to explain to his parents, who mistakenly think he is confessing membership in the IRA!—[Colm] Tóibín is a critic as well as a novelist, and he gradually outed himself in the pages of the tony London Review of Books, wherein these pieces first appeared. He is at his best on Irish ground, exploring the role exposure of his sexual identity had on Oscar Wilde's late writing and the controversial secret diaries of freedom fighter Roger Casement. He ranges abroad, too, of course, suggesting that Elizabeth Bishop's deeply closeted life is perfectly expressed in her bright-surfaced poems and that James Baldwin was more controversial as a gay novelist than as a black one. The autobiographical pieces that begin and end the book are so searching and tender that one wants a whole book of them."—Booklist
