About this product
- DescriptionOne of the joys of reading is coming across a book in which language is perfectly wedded to story. These Granite Islands is a marvelous first vel, confronting with humor, bravery and pathos the manner in which we construct or destroy our various loves. Colum McCann, author of Let The Great World Spin Isobel - wife, mother, hatmaker - lies on her deathbed, recalling the fateful summer of 1936, when a passionate and dangerous love affair tests her loyalty and challenges her sense of propriety, dissolving in a haunting tragedy. A gripping tale of friendship, a portrait of a marriage and a meditation on the tragedy of loss. A page-turning literary debut.
- Author BiographySarah Stonich has been awarded a number of grants and fellowships. These Granite Islands was translated to eight languages and short-listed for France's prestigious Grand Prix de lectrices d'Elle.
