"A luminous, elliptical novel in which everyday life manages, in moments, to approach the mystical." - Jennifer Egan (The New York Times)
"Brooklyn held me spellbound. Tóibín has a gift that Tolstoy and Chekhov have also been credited with: a seeming ability to render real life, undiluted and unornamented, on the page." - Bloomberg News
