Under the rose :
selected stories /
|Main Creator:||O'Faolain, Julia.|
Julia O'Faolain is one of the most important Irish writers of the past half-century. 'Under the rose' is a selection of short stories taken from her many celebrated collections. These are stories about families and relationships, religion and politics, new life and mortality, and their settings range from Ireland and the USA to Italy and France. O'Faolain exposes the delusions of sexual desire, explores the failings of the Church and unpicks the casual brutalities of a patriarchal society. In an afterword, she considers the art of the short story and the influences that continue to shape her work.
