Editorial Reviews

Review

“O’Connor’s picture of the Dublin literary world is as lively as a novel, and the minor characters are as sharply seen as the great ones.” —V. S. Pritchett

“Frank O’Connor’s early life of Michael O’Donovan belongs with the best of its kind.” —The Times Literary Supplement

“His place in the company of W.B. Yeats, J.M. Synge and James Joyce seems secure.” —The Wall Street Journal

About the Author

Frank O’Connor (1903–1966) was born in Cork, Ireland, and fought for the Irish Republican Army in the war for independence. He was a prolific author of short stories, plays, literary criticism, memoir, and poetry, and the managing director of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. In addition to being a renowned writer whom W. B. Yeats famously described as “doing for Ireland what Chekhov did for Russia,” O’Connor was also a highly regarded teacher and translator of Irish literature. The world’s richest prize for short fiction is named in his honor.
