Riassunto: Frank O'Connor's enormous literary success is all the more remarkable given that he was born and brought up in the slums of Cork, his childhood marked by poverty and illness. In 1928, he set off for the excitement of Dublin, where he became great friends with W.B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, and George Russell. After the success of his first book, Guests of a Nation, O'Connor was unstoppable. As well as writing plays, short stories, criticism, and poetry, he became the director of the legendary Abbey Theatre. He continued to write, even when illness forced him to give up all else. Much of what he wrote, however, was banned due to Irish censorship laws, and so he decided to broaden his horizons in America. There, his success was huge but short-lived?illness forced his return to Ireland for good, where he died in 1966. Today, more than three decades after his death, Frank O'Connor's works are as popular as ever. Jim McKeon's thoughtful portrait will surely be welcomed by all admirers.
