A stunning collection of nine stories that teases out the delicate and difficult strands woven between mothers and sons.

'Beautifully captured moments of longing and loss' The Guardian'Truly remarkable' Richard FordMothers and Sons is a sensitive meditation on the dramas surrounding this most elemental of relationships. Psychologically intricate and emotionally incisive, each story 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.

This is an acute, masterful and moving collection that confirms Colm Tóibín as a great prose stylist of our time.
