4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Short Story Collection 8 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These Collected stories of John McGahern show the range and power of a master storyteller at the peak of his powers. He is, to my mind, a better story-writer than novelist; though his novel. "The Dark" was my first encounter with the works of McGahern. Anyone who enjoys the short story will love the work of McGahern.
