Collected Stories by Clare Boylan

Book Description

Two decades of short fiction from a great Irish storyteller: "An imagination that transmutes reality into the stuff of magic." --Sunday Telegraph . The Irish writer Clare Boylan has been publishing compelling and captivating work for over twenty years. Though she is the author of six critically acclaimed novels, she remains one of the most original and exciting short-story writers of our time. Like Alistair MacLeod, Alice Munro, and her compatriot William Trevor, her stories are universal. Hers is an imagination that is able, magically and marvelously, to transform everyday experience into something quite unexpected. As perceptive as Colette, as darkly witty as Dorothy Parker, she waves a flag for the dispossessed and the marginalized and gleefully pulls love from behind its romantic faade. She makes the reader laugh out loud while at the same time compelling an uncomfortable self-examination. Plumbing the inner workings of marriage, aging, family dynamics, and the cost of love, her richly sardonic humor and acutely merciless observations may seem gentle, but look again, for they are edged with razors.Celebrating twenty years of rare accomplishment, The Collected Stories introduces American readers to a luminous and unforgettable writer of short fiction.

Books By Author Clare Boylan

Emma Brown by Clare Boylan Emma Brown, Paperback (July 2004)

An enthralling Victorian novel of mystery, atmosphere and page-turning suspense - more than a mere impersonation of Charlotte Bronte, Clare Boylan is living in her mind, and the result is delicious, beautifully written and quite superlative.

Beloved Stranger by Clare Boylan Beloved Stranger, Paperback (September 2002)

Part love story, part thriller, "Beloved Stranger" is a contemporary take on "King Lear". It provides an analysis of marriage - a changeless institution in a vastly altered world, a private dictatorship where love and fear, tenderness and tyranny, remain hidden at its heart.
