Sobre El Autor

An Irish master of the short story, Frank O'Connor was born Michael O'Donovan in Cork. It is not surprising to learn in the first part of his autobiography, An Only Child (1961), that he took his adored mother's name. O'Connor's absorbing interest was the literary treasury of Ireland. He labored mostrar más tirelessly over masterful translations of ancient Gaelic works. O'Connor wrote the well-received A Short History of Irish Literature: A Backward Look and edited an anthology of prose and poetry, A Book of Ireland (1959), which contains some of his own translations from the Gaelic. His Shakespeare's Progress (1960) is an appraisal of the bard. In The Lonely Voice: A Study of the Short Story (1963), he examines the work of those he considers the great short story writers of the past. The subjects of his own stories are the middle and lower-middle classes of his beloved Ireland. In his last years, O'Connor lived mostly in the United States, where he taught at Harvard and Northwestern universities. He passed away in 1966. The Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award which is named in his honor because he devoted much of his work to this writing form began in 2005. It is an international literary award presented for the best short story collection. The prize amount is $25,000 (as of 2012). Each year, roughly sixty books are longlisted, with either four or six books shortlisted, the final decision is made by three judges. In 2014 the winner was Collin Barrett for his work Young Skins.

This book is misrepresented as it is a compilation that was put together after the author's death from writing fragments he left behind. Very little of it is about his father, which would have fit nicely with his former memoir, An Only Child. Most of it is about his day to day existence and socializing with other famous or near famous writers and poets in Ireland at the time. Boring and tedious, unless maybe you are a big fan of those folks and you want to know all about nothing. I gave it two stars because the writing itself is still pretty good.… (más)

Written by a gentle, caring individual, and in broad strokes not unlike Frank McCourt's memoirs, but not as stylistically rendered. His recollections of getting caught up in the Irish rebellion in the early 1920's are especially interesting.

A sweet little story about the acceptance of responsibility and the joy of being a child.
