The Islands
summary
This collection of related short fiction follows the lives of two sisters and some of the people that surround them. Dominated by the tragic loss of a third sister at a young age, the family spirals out of control. The stories follow the sisters through three stages of their lives, each stage taking place on an island - in southwest Ireland, southern England and the Bay of Naples. Beautifully and sparsely written, the stories are evocative of landscape and character and suffused with Wall’s trademark eye for detail and metaphor.
