The Short Stories of John B. Keane

Categories:

12.35

All human life is here, and Keane tells its story in an astonishing procession of remarkable characters and in rare humorous glimpses of his own career. There are more shades to John B. Keane’s humour than there are colours in the rainbow. Compassion, shrewdness and a glorious sense of fun and roguery are evident in this collection, which brings together John B. Keane’s tales. A fitting tribute to John B. Keane, for decades Ireland’s favourite storyteller, this winning short story collection typifies the late author’s folkloric imagination and storytelling arts.
