John McGahern is consistently hailed as one of the finest Irish writers since James Joyce and Samuel Beckett. Those with whom McGahern corresponded include family, friends, and literary luminaries such as Seamus Heaney, Colm T?ib?n, Paul Muldoon, Ian Hamilton, and Richard Murphy. This volume collects some of the witty, profound, and unfailingly brilliant letters that inform both the intellectual and more prosaic concerns of McGahern, who considered the ‘myth of Father John’ contrary to his well-travelled life between Ireland, England, the United States and France.
