Description
The winner of the Irish PEN Award, the Ulysses Medal, and the Frank McCourt International Short Story Award, Edna O'Brien here offers selections from 20 years of her best short fiction. She pulls the reader into a woman's experience, from a young Irish girl's view of obsessive love and its often wrenching pain to tales of contemporary life that show women who open themselves to sexuality, to disappointment, and to madness.

"There's no writer alive who sounds quite like Edna O'Brien. Only a person of abiding compassion could write those lovely words; they echo in almost every page of A Fanatic Heart."—Washington Post Book World

"She has—as only the finest writers can—created a world: she speaks in a voice identifiably and only hers."—NYTBR
