Publishers Description: THE NEW WORK FROM THE WINNER OF THE IMPAC LITERARY AWARD 'Mothers and Sons' is a sensitive and beautifully written meditation on the dramas surrounding this most elemental of relationships. Each of the nine stories focuses on a moment in which an unspoken balance shifts; in which a mother or son do battle, or experience a sudden crisis, thus leaving their conception of who they are subtly or seriously altered. A son buries his mother and goes out to a drug-fuelled rave on a remote beach near Dublin. In the course of this one night his grief and desire for raw feeling combine with exquisite intensity. And in "A Long Winter", Colm Toibin's finest piece of fiction to date, a son goes searching for his mother in the snow-covered Pyrenees.
