Long Island by Colm Tóibín

About the book club: Oprah’s book club has taken on different forms over decades, starting in 1996 on The Oprah Winfrey Show. She’s still book clubbing, and this month she picked her 105th title!

What Oprah said about the book: “We’re back with the newest Oprah’s Book Club selection: “Long Island” by best-selling author Colm Tóibín!

This novel centers around Eilis Lacey, an Irish immigrant living in New York’s Long Island (hence the book’s title), surrounded by her husband’s extended Italian American family. Within the first few pages, Eilis gets some truly devastating news that forces her to rethink everything she thought she knew about who she is and where she belongs.

“Long Island” is, in some ways, a sequel to Colm Tóibín’s award-winning 2009 novel Brooklyn, but you don’t have to have read it to dive fully into this new novel. As Oprah explains, ‘This novel has everything you need to know in its own completely riveting story.’

We urge you to get a copy of this novel of heartbreak, second chances, and new beginnings. We are so excited to read Colm Tóibín’s latest with you; we have a feeling it will generate some spirited conversation.
