A single mother. A nurse. A quiet woman, who nonetheless feels things acutely — a woman with tumultuous emotions and few people to share them with.Academy Street is Mary Costellos luminous portrait of a whole life. It follows Tess from her girlhood in western Ireland through her relocation to America and her life there, concluding with a moving re-encounter with her Irish family after forty years of exile. The novel has a hypnotic pull and a steadily mounting emotional force. It speaks of disappointments but also of great joy. It shows how the signal events of the last half century affect the course of a life lived in New York City.Anne Enright has said that Costellos first collection of stories, The China Factory, has the feel of work that refused to be abandoned- of stories that were written for the sake of getting something important right ...

Her writing has the kind of urgency that the great problems demand (The Guardian).Academy Street is driven by this same urgency. In sentence after sentence it captures the rhythm and intensity of inner life.
