In 2015, I’m Going to Read all of Colm Tóibín’s Fiction

I wrote a post over on the ABAA blog about my reading resolution for 2015, to read all of Colm Tóibín’s novels (and a bunch of his nonfiction) in order.

For years. I’ve been picking at his books, reading his short fiction, and being generally blown away and awed by most of them. This year, I want to read them carefully, in order, and see what I learn. I’ll blog about the project here from time to time, but probably won’t review every single book. I’ve never deliberately tried to read through a writer’s collected works before, mainly because I enjoy variety and have been afraid of souring on the author before I’m done. But, the books of Tóibín’s that I have read have been quite different and his interests are such that I suspect the project will contain enough variety to keep me focused.

In the past, I’ve reviewed his novels Brooklyn, The Testament of Mary, and Nora Webster on this blog. Stay tuned for updates…
