Well-written but uneven. I wanted to love it, but I barely liked it. I am in a real reading slump lately! It feels like it's been weeks since I really liked anything! ( )

I confess I miss the appeal of Colm Toibin. A large number of literary luminaries helped with this collection of short stories but I found many unfinished, a few like Barcelona seemed artless. Credit must be given to Toibin for his fearlessness since a few stories give us fairly graphic gay sex scenes, but the emotional stories are often misplaced. In Color of Shadows ,the storyteller doesn't provide much more than the character who lives in a narrow emotional field. His aunt is dying and yet there is the mystery of his mother who apparently tried to kill both herself and him and who is not even aware lives in the same town as his dying aunt. We learn nothing about his reaction to this. In another story, we follow the evolution of a relationship between two Pakistani men working in Spain who fall in love. Again the emotional world, except for the one man's thoughts of tenderness towards the other, are wafer thin. In the title story a man has come back to a house and is haunted by his memory of his lover but we are given , and I have to say deliberately, no details. Perhaps the allure of the work is that Toibin is open about gay love and longing in a way that has not been seen before. Thematically, all the stories feature a journey in which the main character finds themselves a stranger, even if they are returning to their own home. Estrangement and living as an outsider, either because one is gay, is hiding something, is foreign are seen throughout and one senses that Toibin is drawing, sometimes on the expatriot's return, which is in part his story. However, with a few exceptions I just didn't understand all the excitement. ( )

This was my second [[Tóibín]]'s reading and I liked it very much. This is a book full of short stories. What all the main characters have in common is that they have a special family background, childhood or adolescence and also some of them are gay. The scenery where the stories are taking place are Ireland or Spain (mostly Barcelona). In any case, there is a lot of love for each protagonist and his story. It's written very carefully and as a reader I got soon the impression to be familiar with all of them. ( )
