Colm Tóibín

Colm Tóibín was born in Enniscorthy in 1955. He is the author of ten novels, and his work has been shortlisted for the Booker Prize three times, as well as the Folio Prize in 2015; and has won the Costa Novel Award, the Impac Award and the David Cohen Prize for Literature, amongst others. He lives in Dublin.

The Magician is a sweeping novel of unrequited love, exile, war and family. Colm Tóibín’s exhilarating new novel is, at once, the intimate portrait of a writer and, at the same time, the story of a turbulent century.
