Hi,

My guess is that Colm Toibin wrote "Portrait of a Lady". I've just finished reading his new novel "The Blackwater Lightship" and when starting "Portrait of a Lady" it was more or less the same style of writing. Simple and somehow pure. I have not read books by all the other authors that contributed to Finbar's Hotel, but I tend towards the idea that the order of the stories in the book correspond to the alphabetical order on the cover of the book. But, of course, the authors might also have played a trick on the readers by adopting a style of another author so that we are all confused and wondering. By the way, what is your guess concerning which story is Toibin's one? Have you also read the "Blackwater Lightship"?

Regards
Gisela
