RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 53903732 LA English T1 The master : a novel A1 Tóibín, Colm,, PB Scribner PP New York YR 2004 SN 0743250400 9780743250405 AB " ... In stunningly resonant prose, Toibin captures the loneliness and longing, the hope and despair of a man who never married, never resolved his sexual identity, and whose forays into intimacy inevitably failed him and those he tried to love. The emoyional intensity of Toibin's portrait of James is riveting. Time and again, James, a master of psychological subtlety in his fiction, proves blind to his own heart and incapable of reconciling his dreams of passion with his own fragility." From the bookjacket.
