Description

‘Superb… These thirty-two stories inhabit the Technicolor vernaculars of taxi drivers, barbers, paper pushers and society matrons… O’Hara was American fiction’s greatest eavesdropper, recording the everyday speech and tone of all strata of mid-century society’ Wall Street JournalJohn O’Hara remains the great chronicler of American society, and nowhere are his powers more evident than in his portraits of New York’s so-called Golden Age. Unsparingly observed, brilliantly cutting and always on the tragic edge of epiphany, the stories collected here are among O’Hara’s finest work, and show why he still stands as the most-published short story writer in the history of the New Yorker.
