Résumé :

"In this comprehensive guide to the fiction of John McGahern, Eamon Maher argues that in his themes, scenes, scenarios and characters, which on the surface seem to originate from a limited source - the local - we can find genuine and profound portrayals of the entire scope of human experience - the universal. This is what makes McGahern's work so admirable and significant. But more than that, Maher looks at McGahern's writing in the broader context of changes in Irish society over the course of the writer's career, and points to his moral courage in writing about difficult aspects of Irish society at a time when it was not so popular to do so."--Jacket.
