Description du produit
For several years I pursued the story (and writing) of John O'Hara (1905-1970), once one of the most popular writers in America. His novels BUTTERFIELD 8, A RAGE TO LIVE, TEN NORTH FREDERICK were among his bestsellers. He also wrote a Broadway hit (PAL JOEY), hundreds of short stories (he remains the writer with the most stories published in the NEW YORKER), a few plays (mostly forgettable), and lots of journalism (he was a columnist for NEWSWEEK, for HOLIDAY, and others). He won some major awards (a National Book Award for TEN NORTH FREDERICK), but today he is largely forgotten. Why? I read all of O'Hara's works, visited sites important in his life, and have come to some conclusions about him and his writing. This brief "biographical memoir" tells the story.

Like sparks from a blacksmith’s anvil Daniel Dyer has thrown glimmers of light into the works and life of John O’Hara. His comments are informed, conversant and relaxed in an informed way. The full blown biographies he has left for others but has given us glances into the writing and the being of Mr. O’Hara. I found traveling with Mr. Dyer in tracking down the places significant in the life the author of such novels as Ten North Frederick and Appointment in Samarra an enjoyable experience.
