House of Names - Colm Toibin

Staff Pick
Much of Colm Toibin’s work makes drama of everyday life, but House of Names is anything but. A retelling of the Greek tragedy Iphigenia in Aulis, House of Names is about how honor, loyalty, religion, and duty govern us, but love, anger, remorse, and revenge also wrestle for control of men’s fates. Which path is right when each has numerous gods dedicated to it? While this is Colm Toibin’s outwardly passionate tale, it feels like a natural progression for him as a storyteller. All of his characters feel trapped and decide to will themselves forward with definitive consequences for all involved.
