The Short Stories Of Liam O'flaherty

PDF EBook by Liam O'Flaherty

EBook Description

The first eight stories are like paintings. The Short Stories Of Liam O'flaherty PDF EBook They're unexpected, and only a couple of them are conventional vignettes with human actors, a young couple planting their first potato beds or tramps deciding whether or not to stay in the workhouse. The others are a surprise, a seagull making his first flight, rockfish eyeing the bait on a hook, a cat stalking a blackbird, a cow with a stillborn calf. Very unusual. The book, with almost sixty stories, is made up of selections from O'Flaherty's three books of stories. They are very short, mostly only three or four pages. These stories are treasures, full of wonder, full of animals and occasionally peopled. There's humour, but it doesn't dominate. The tone is generally serious. I hadn't thought of O'Flaherty as a nature writer, but he is. Like this book?
