#5 Remembering Light and Stone.jpgAisling is an Irish emigrant living in a small Italian town with an Italian family who run a run a shop. She has a nice America boyfriend called Ted and finds work as a foreign language expert. Aisling writes about her travels around Italy, her interest in art history and her disturbing dreams. The writing is confessional, accurate and authentic; giving the ordinary thoughts of everyday life an aesthetic quality. Aisling criticizes the aspirations and interests of the other characters, as Ted tries to make her happy. Like so many literary novels written since the nineties, this book is a study of trauma and the fallibility of memory.
