Introduction by Russell Banks.

The legendary book about writing by the legendary writer is back!

Frank O’Connor was one of the twentieth century’s greatest short story writers, and one of Ireland’s greatest authors ever. Now, O’Connor’s influential and sought-after book on the short story is back.
The Lonely Voice offers a master class with the master. With his sharp wit and straightforward prose, O’Connor not only discusses the techniques and challenges of a form in which "a whole lifetime must be crowded into a few minutes," but he also delves into a passionate consideration of his favorite writers and their greatest works, including Chekhov, Hemingway, Kipling, Joyce, and others.

This book was recommended to me by a friend and it was the first of O'Connor I have read. Since that point I've inhaled his short stories and reread this book. If you want inspiration and astounding insight into the realm of the short story, start nowhere but this book.
