This book investigates unexplored areas of Frank O'Connor's work; his achievements as a translator of Irish language poetry, his role in the debates on Irish literary modernism, his reception in America, his relationship with writers and intellectuals of the time, his autobiographical writings, his fictional representations of the Irish Civil War, and Denis Johnston's film adaptation of Guests of the Nation, are examined. The book also includes an original essay by Harriet O'Donovan Sheehy on life with the man and the writer.

Hilary Lennon currently teaches in the school of English, Trinity College Dublin.
