Collected Stories

By John McGahern

Published Oct 1992


This remarkable volume brings together all of the short fiction of John McGahern, published during his lifetime.  McGahern has long been recognised as a master of the short story; the Collected Stories confirms his reputation as one of Ireland’s greatest writers.


Gentle, lyrical, an amorist of language, a natural historian of the soul.

Irish Times


He writes with authority and gravity, and with an instinct for the most appropriated detail.
