    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesA truly amazing collection of stories by John O'Hara depicting the 1930's through the 1950's in Manhattan Many stories centering around older Hollywood actors who could not get any work in films and so rather than be humiliated they move back to New York to work on Broadway or simply to become invisible and not have to answer to Hollywood actors agents producers and fans about why they had not been seen in any movies in such a

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesThe New York Stories by John O’Hara Penguin Classics 2013Most of O’Hara’s stories have been published in The New Yorker giving birth to a certain type of story that we now associate with the magazine Though I am not a fan of this type of story I find O’Hara’s stories among the most entertaining I’ve ever readHaving worked as a journalist the skills accumulated while reporting real facts have served him well and have helped him create punchy fact based stories often inspired by overheard conversations An O’Hara story is often like a

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesContinuing my current love affair with Mr O'Hara One HELL of a writerO'Hara wrote hundreds of short stories Ultimately they found their way into collections of course The one I read recently Library of America's 'John O'Hara Stories' pulled from his entire short story output But this volume is limited in scope; it only covers stories set in New York O

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesThis collection of John O'Hara's short stories most of them appearing in the The New Yorker magazine between the 1930s and 1960s are all uite good These stories cross walk across the lives of the people who live in New York City and local environs and typically are about the people of my parents' generation Some of these stories are uite short 2 3 pages and others are much much longer; but they are all insightful and incisive The plots tend to revolve people's cares their hopes their desires their loves; in other words the full range of human life and emotion O'Hara uses his words carefully and makes the characters come alive on the pageSome of my favorite stories include We're Friends Again Sportsmanship and Pleasure but uite frankly they were all very goodThis a great edition to my short stories collection A solid 45 stars of 5 for me

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesAn audio book to savor The stories are tightly written and wonderfully presented in this audio collection In 2017 the stories bring you back to a different time and a whole cast of 1930s to 1950s characters It's full of bars cocktail parties old dames society women lawyers thugs and clubs that no longer exist I loved going t

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesI think I came across John O'Hara through the New Yorker Podcast which is excellent I'd never heard of him he seems to have fallen out of fashion after decades of popularity This is of a me problem than a problem with O'hara I don't like reading an entire volume of short stories all in one go Since this was a library book I'd not much choice I find I get bored and start noticing an author's tics far too much when I need to read

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesI came to O'Hara through his novel Appointment in Samarra That novel his most successful was pretty good but the short story is where his writing really clicks for me This collection is one of the better collection of shorts I've read for a few reasons First O'Hara has an unusually terse almost reporter like style that really pops in a shorter format Second he's eually good in developing characters and plot over three pages or fifty pages The dude really had a gift and if you like short stories you should read this one

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesI found the stories to be so dated but there were some surprising situations that harboured on the surreal and that always appeals to me I think the following uotation sums up some of the sadness and streaks of bleaknes

    summary É The New York Stories The New York StoriesI love the writing of John O'Hara some of these stories are wonderful Others seem unfinished like maybe they're actually a fragment of a larger piece that O'Hara never got around to completing It certainly could be that I just don't get the point of some of the stories But what
