Although Eilis Lacey's family isn't always the healthiest bunch around, they clearly love each other, which makes it a huge shock when Eilis decides to moves across the Atlantic Ocean to Brooklyn, New York. In Brooklyn, Eilis adapts and thrives but after a sudden. Hauntingly beautiful and heartbreaking, Colm Tóibín's sixth novel, Brooklyn, is set in Brooklyn and Ireland in the early s, when one young woman crosses the ocean to make a new life for herself.

Eilis Lacey has come of age in small-town Ireland in the years following World War Two. The Hidden Rivers of Brooklyn F rom behind a parapet on the tower of Litchfield Villa, the Italianate mansion that marks the western edge of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, I was barely able to make out — over treetops and tall buildings — a glint of Gowanus Bay, roughly two miles away.

Since the release of Brooklyn (), the consensus has been glowing in terms of the film's loyalty to the Colm Tóibín novel.

Eilis Lacey lives in a small town in Ireland with her mother and older sister Rose.

She lives a pretty boring existence, hanging at home and going to school to become a bookkeeper. Everything changes when Rose introduces her to Father Flood, a priest who wants to help Eilis immigrate to America to find work. Last Exit to Brooklyn, by Hubert Selby Jr.

Last Exit to Brooklyn was highly controversial at the time of its release, due to its grim portrayal of Brooklyn’s slums after WWII. The book is divided into six separate short stories, each providing a look into the lives of its depraved characters.
