With her inimitable gift for describing the workings of the heart and mind, Edna OBrien introduces us to a vivid new cast of restless, searching people who-whether in the Irish countryside or London or New York-remind us of our own humanity. In Send My Roots Rain, Miss Gilhooley, a librarian, waits in the lobby of a posh Dublin hotel-expecting to meet a celebrated poet while reflecting on the great love who disappointed her. The Irish workers of The Shovel Kings have pipe dreams of becoming millionaires in London, but long for their quickly changing homeland-exiles in both places. Green Georgette is a searing anatomy of class, through the eyes of a little girl; Old Wounds illuminates the importance of family and memory in old age. In language that is always bold and vital, Edna OBrien pays tribute to the universal forces that rule our lives.
