9780905169149: Collected Short Stories

Michael McLaverty is one of Ireland's most distinguished short story writers. He paints with acute precision and intensity the landscape of Northern Ireland, its remote hill farms, rough island terrain and the terraced back streets of Belfast. His stories evoke moments of passion, wonder or disenchantment in the lives of people living in environments that are often hostile and cruel.

About the Author:

MICHAEL MCLAVERTY was born in County Monaghan in 1904 and lived for a short time on Rathlin Island in County Antrim, before moving to Belfast. One of Ireland's most distinguished modern writers, he is best remembered for his short stories and the novels Call My Brother Back (1939) and Lost Fields (1941). He died in 1992.

Review:

'His tact and pacing, in the individual sentence and the overall story, are beautiful: in his best work, the elegiac is bodied forth in perfectly pondered images and rhythms... McLaverty's place in our literature is secure.' Seamus Heaney
