Jack Harte (Irish Writer) - Short Stories

Short Stories

Harte has published several critically acclaimed collections of short stories. His first, Murphy in the Underworld (1986), was welcomed by the Sunday Independent as "one of the most important story collections for some time." After publication of his second collection, Birds and Other Tails (1996), the Irish Independent described Harte as "a wonderful refreshing voice in contemporary Irish writing." Both these collections are out of print, although several of their stories are included in From Under Gogol's Nose (2004).

Several short stories and collections have been published in translation. These include Birds and Selected Stories, published in Bulgarian in 2001, Dream of A Pyramid, published in Hindi in 2006, and From Under Gogol's Nose, published in Russian by Voskresenye Publishing House, Moscow, in 2007.

Famous quotes containing the words stories and/or short:

    A curious thing about atrocity stories is that they mirror, instead of the events they purport to describe, the extent of the hatred of the people that tell them.
    Still, you can’t listen unmoved to tales of misery and murder.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    I think “taste” is a social concept and not an artistic one. I’m willing to show good taste, if I can, in somebody else’s living room, but our reading life is too short for a writer to be in any way polite. Since his words enter into another’s brain in silence and intimacy, he should be as honest and explicit as we are with ourselves.
    John Updike (b. 1932)
