ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
In una grande casa, immersa nel verde sterminato della campagna irlandese, vive Josie, una donna rimasta ormai sola con i ricordi di un matrimonio infelice. Fino a quando nella sua esistenza non entra McGreevy, un membro dell'Ira inseguito dalla polizia e dall'esercito, che in cerca di un rifugio irrompe tra le mura del suo isolamento. Nell'oscurità e nel silenzio di quella casa, da cui non possono uscire, lentamente si avvicinano: lei vede in lui il figlio che non ha mai avuto, lui le fa comprendere il dramma del loro popolo. Con una scrittura potente e piena di grazia Edna O'Brien ci mostra due solitudini distanti, che si specchiano l'una nell'altra e si riconoscono, ma alle quali il destino tragico della storia non lascerà scampo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Masterful novel by the bestselling writer, with a controversial story marrying the worlds of a political terrorist and a loveless widow. Josie, the ailing, elderly inhabitant of an Irish country mansion, dwells in the shadowy world of remembered pain and loneliness. McGreevy, the terrorist, reintroduces the possibility of compassion and tenderness, but there is an inevitably violent conclusion to their understanding as the police net closes. With extraordinary skill and empathy, Edna O'Brien shows two faces of a divided land: the yearnings of a woman whose youthful joy was broken, and the intransigent idealism of her captor. Brave and moving, "The House Of Splendid Isolation" is Edna O'Brien at her very best.
