Country Funeral (Faber Stories)

Author(s): John McGahern

Short Stories

"My only concern," John McGahern once said, "is that I get the sentence right and describe my world clearly and deeply." 'The Country Funeral' witnesses three brothers, John, Philly and Fonsie Ryan, as they travel west from Dublin to Gloria Bog - the heart of the territory where so many of McGahern's stories take place - to attend the funeral of their uncle. Depicting the customs and rituals of the day, McGahern exquisitely traces how the brothers react to the area in unexpected and tender ways, and face their own feelings about the transience of life.
