Reviews

Praise for "A Map of Glass "Thoughtful, multifaceted work. . . . Urquhart-whose prose at times flows from the same hand that has written four volumes of poetry-reveals her characters slowly, placing them within or privy to smaller narratives, vignettes, anecdotes that are themselves small marvels of storytelling and serve the several themes of love's pain, family turmoil, and the elusive sense of home and place, especially in light of Ireland's immigrant history. . . . Masterful.--Starred "Kirkus Reviews " The acclaimed Canadian writer Jane Urquhart often works within a particular wistful mood-her stories, whether contemporary or historical, are full of dormant hurts, quietly endured; long separations; sorrows. "The Night Stages, " her tender, meditative eighth novel, again has this tenor, suggestive of John Banville and Alice McDermott . . . It feels like life: a little bigger than any of us on our own, our moments of loneliness less unique than we imagine.--Charles Finch "The New York Times " "For its language alone, The Night Stages will quickly earn its place among Urquhart's other globally acclaimed and award-winning novels. . . . Urquhart finds jewels of hope within the bleakness of emotional weather that she charts. The Night Stages is another tour de force by this exceptional author." --The Toronto Star "Urquhart's poetic, almost ethereal writing invites readers to revisit certain passages and marvel. This book about unquenchable longing is a lovely addition to her distinguished, award-filled oeuvre." --Library Journal, starred review "The acclaimed Canadian writer Jane Urquhart often works within a particular wistful mood-her stories, whether contemporary or historical, are full of dormant hurts, quietly endured; long separations; sorrows.

Masterful." --Kirkus Reviews, Starred The most compelling depiction of the sense of place in human lives --Alice Munro "The Night Stages tells a story at once sweeping and intimate-of love and flight, of brothers and art, and of Ireland. In her crystalline prose, Jane Urquhart creates an emotional story that manages to feel both very real and deeply mythic. A beautiful, moving constellation of people, places, and ideas." --Jane Mendelsohn For its language alone, The Night Stages will quickly earn its place among Urquhart's other globally acclaimed and award-winning novels. . . .
