Perhaps it is my first time reading Toibin, but I am all caught up with 'The Master'. The way he captures the motivation of James is astounding for a work of fiction. It may have to do with the fact that I am a Henry James fan too (a not very popular wirter with today's crop of readers who wants their fiction laced with more "action" so to speak). That was one of the reason why a friend of mine recommended 'The Master' to me.

I know that all those frequenting this site are Toibin's fans and admirers so I would like to apologize beforehand for not learning about this magnificent writer earlier. I will certainly hunt down all his other books after finishing this one.
