Rate this:
Tóibín introduces us to the Dublin streets where three Irish literary giants--Wilde, Yeats, and Joyce--grew up. He explores not only the complex relationships between three of the greatest writers in the English language and their fathers, but also illustrates the surprising ways these men surface in their sons' work. He recounts the resistance to English cultural domination and the birth of modern Irish cultural identity that are reflected in their stories of fathers and sons. -- adapted from jacket
