Summary
"Sean O'Faolain (1900-1991) was one of the most important Irish writers in the first half of the twentieth century. He is most admired and best remembered for his 90 or so short stories, which first appeared in book form in 1932 and continued to do so until his Collected Stories were published in 1980. But he also wrote novels, biographies, travel, a memoir, and so on. O'Faolain joined the IRA as a young man and fought in the Irish War of Independence. By the 1930s his politics had altered. He lived for a time in both the United States and England before returning to Ireland (and eventually becoming director of the Irish Arts Council), and became known as an outspoken critic of the narrow conservatism and provincialism of Irish society. Especially important in this light are the years between 1940 and 1946, when he served as editor of The Bell, the most important cultural magazine in Dublin at the time."--
