Bookclub

Nora Webster

The March read for the bookclub is “Nora Webster” by Colm Toibin. It is the late 1960s in Ireland. Nora Webster is living in a small town, looking after her four children, trying to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. She is fiercely intelligent, at times difficult and impatient, at times kind, but she is trapped by her circumstances, and waiting for any chance which will lift her beyond them. Colm Toibin’s Nora is a character as resonant as Anna Karenina or Madame Bovary and Nora Websteris a novel that illuminates our own lives in a way that is rare in literature. Its humanity and compassion forge an unforgettable reading experience.
