Description
W.B. Yeats called him "Ireland's Chekhov," and indeed, Frank O'Connor's place among such literary figures as Yeats, James Joyce, and J.M. Synge seems assured. Selected and arranged by Julian Barnes, the rich mix of writings in this collection starts off with O'Connor's most famous short story, "Guests of the Nation," set during the Irish War of Independence. He chronicles his childhood with an alcoholic father and protective mother, vividly evokes the land he called home, probes the hardships and rewards of Irish emigration, and traces his literary influences in brilliant essays on Joyce and Yeats.
