Review:

"This is fiction, but it has, for me, the clang of truth" (John Updike)

"Better than anyone else, he told the truth about his time, the first half of the twentieth century. He was a professional. He wrote honestly and well" (John O’Hara on John O’Hara, inscribed on his gravestone)

"A man who knows exactly what he is writing about and has written it marvellously well" (Ernest Hemingway)

"A social realist obsessed with the peccadilloes of the upper class, but he was considered a daring writer in the Thirties and Forties, his best prose distinguished by its concision, clever dialect and sexual candor. He is credited with inventing the New Yorker short story" ( Washington Post)

"A writer of dream-sharp tales, crisp yet dense" ( Los Angeles Times)

Book Description:

'Mr O'Hara's eyes and ears have been spared nothing' - Dorothy Parker
