Colm Toibin's Newest

"The Empty Family"

via Books Inq.

I started to read this and really enjoyed the first story.  My major problem with Mr. Toibin is that I often just don't get the more overt homosexual stories.  I'm obviously not the intended audience.  I can't explain why this reaction to Mr. Toibin, and not to Mr. White or Mr. Holleran, or other famous homosexual writers.  It just is.
