Half way through, I would have been tempted to give this collection a lower rating The final piece, however, is one of the best I ve ever read about the estrangement and fall of a childhood friend It s written so seamlessly well that you almost can t believe 20 years have passed in the 17 pages of the story.The other works range from mediocre to good O Connor has the sort of down to earth Irish style that would would imagine a subdued James Joyce to have He often writes from a child s perspe Half way through, I would have been tempted to give this collection a lower rating The final piece, however, is one of the best I ve ever read about the estrangement and fall of a childhood friend It s written so seamlessly well that you almost can t believe 20 years have passed in the 17 pages of the story.The other works range from mediocre to good O Connor has the sort of down to earth Irish style that would would imagine a subdued James Joyce to have He often writes from a child s perspective to exaggerate minor conflicts or character traits into larger conflicts.While I didn t love everything here, the final story was good enough that I would be happy to readof O Connor, and I can happily recommend this Mini Modern Classic Not the kind of stories for me generally however, I respect them as classics and the ability to write a complete story in so few words is amazing It was a fair purchase for 2 The title is what drew me to it as a musician. I loved the first three stories in this collection, they are very short, poignant The Cornet Player , sweet and funny First Confession , shocking Guests of the Nation and quintessentially Irish The last one A story by Maupassant didn t impress me all that much but I definitely want to readworks by this author. Fine, nothing too exciting Not bad, but wouldn t read again.
