Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Banned in 1936 in Ireland for its frank depiction of lesbianism, this extraordinary novel has been recently rediscovered by a new generation of readers. Yearning for something she cannot fully express, a young woman leaves Ireland for Spain, taking a job as a governess, and finds unexpected love. Ties in with the release of the film from Miramax, starring Polly Walker and Vincent Perez.
"The skilled prose of Irish author O'Brien (1897-1974) transmutes the material of a conventional coming-of-age tale...into a rich, absorbing study of character and culture....O'Brien writes with a striking grace and acuity that illuminate not only the landscape but the complexity of the people living in it."
"O'Brien evokes a fictional world painted with layer upon layer of rich detail....'Talk of Angels' is not thin. Though its scope is fairly narrow...its vision is both wide an deep."
Jeanne Duprau, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 08/10/1997
