Collected Stories

'“His place in the company of W.B. Yeats, J.M. Synge and James Joyce seems secure.” —The Wall Street Journal“One of the masters of the short story.” —Newsweek“In his 63 years, Frank O’Connor produced an impressive amount of work . . . but it’s his short stories that guarantee his immortality. . . . Each [story] is, in its own way, shattering.” —Anne Tyler“In almost all the stories in this excellently balanced collection O’Connor’s people explode from the page. The nice are here and the nasty; the gentle, the generous, the mean, the absurd, those rich in dignity, those without a shred of it . . . Without adornment, he simply tells the truth.” —William Trevor“Though the subjects are mostly Irish and the landscape is either Cork or Dublin, the themes are as universal as those of Chekhov.” —Los Angeles Times'
