The Visitor by Maeve Brennan

The Visitor

By Maeve Brennan

The Visitor is the haunting tale of Anastasia King, who, at the age of twenty-two, returns to her grandmother's house in Dublin - the very house where she grew up - after six long years away. She has been in Paris, comforting her disgraced and dying mother, who ran away from a disastrous marriage to Anastasia's late father, her grandmother's only son. It is a story of Dublin and the unkind, ungenerous, emotionally unreachable side of the Irish temperament. Recently found in a university archive, The Visitor was written in the mid-1940s but was never published. This miraculous literary discovery deepens the oeuvre of Maeve Brennan and confirms her status as one of the best Irish writers of stories since Joyce.
