LONG ISLAND Eilis Lacey, Book 2

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jessie Buckley

Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Jessie Buckley's performance of these characters is so rich that listeners need not worry if they're unfamiliar with BROOKLYN, the first novel in which they appear. Tóibín continues the story of Eilis Lacey, an Irish woman living on Long Island who learns her husband may have fathered a child with another woman back home. Uprooting herself, she returns to Ireland and a different world. One of Buckley's narrating gifts is her ability to project Lacey's silences. She allows intimate conversations to unfold with quiet immediacy. The result is a performance that fits perfectly the humanity of Tóibín's cast. It is so winning and full of depth that the most evocative passages stand alone as their own moments. Listeners can't help but be drawn close. S.P.C.
