'The most gifted woman now writing in English.'
Philip Roth, Pulitzer Prize-winning author

'One of the great creative writers of her generation.'
Mary Robinson

A masterful and controversial story from the bestselling author, marrying the worlds of a political terrorist and a loveless widow

Josie, the ailing, elderly inhabitant of an Irish country mansion, dwells in the shadowy world of remembered pain and loneliness. McGreevy, the terrorist, reintroduces the possibility of compassion and tenderness, but there is an inevitably violent conclusion to their understanding as the police net closes. With extraordinary skill and empathy, Edna O'Brien shows two faces of a divided land: the yearnings of a woman whose youthful joy was broken, and the intransigent idealism of her captor. Brave and moving, The House of Splendid Isolation is Edna O'Brien at her very best.
