9780099561583: Collected Stories (Vintage Classics)

For the first time all of Bernard MacLaverty’s unforgettable short stories are gathered together, with a new introduction by the author

Melding his native Irish sensibilities to those of his adopted west-coast Scotland, these tales attend to life’s big events: love and loss, separation and violence, death and betrayal. But the stories teem with smaller significant moments too—private epiphanies, chilling exchanges, intimate encounters. Each of these extraordinary stories—with their wry, self-deprecating humor, their elegance, and subtle wisdom—gets to the very heart of life. Since the publication of Secrets and Other Stories in 1977, Bernard MacLaverty has been celebrated as one of the finest living short-story writers. Writing in the New York Times, William Boyd summoned the shades of Yeats, Joyce, and Flann O'Brien, insisting that "MacLaverty sits perfectly comfortably" in their company.

About the Author:

Bernard MacLaverty has published five collections of short stories— The Great Profondo, Matters of Life & Death, Secrets, A Time to Dance, and Walking the Dog—and four novels: The Anatomy School, Cal, Grace Notes, and   Lamb, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and won the Saltire Scottish Book of the Year Award. He has written for radio, television, and screen. His short film Bye Child won a BAFTA.

Review:

  "Not since J.D. Salinger's For Esme With Love and Squalor have I enjoyed so much a collection of stories. I mean pleasure -- real pleasure." --Paul Durcan, The Cork Examiner

  "MacLaverty is one of the best practitioners of the genre we have." --New Statesman

  "Beautifully constructed, minutely observed, filled with the poetry of longing, told with an economy and simplicity which makes their small tragedies even more powerful and moving... MacLaverty has created an imagined Ulster which can stand side by side with Joyce's Dublin. Long may he continue." --Guardian
