    PDF FREE [The New York Stories] John OHara î 7 Free download I 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 whatever the case some of them left me

characters Ø The New York Stories Collected for the first time the New York stories of John O. Continuing 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 Hara also wrote groups of stories set in Hollywood and Gibbsville a stand in for his hometown Since the LOA edition had freedom its editor was able to select what he considered to be the best of everything The New York Stories is slightly less fortunate but only slightly By that I mean I find the subject matter of a handful of the stories less interesting Howevereven the less interesting stories are still very well written as stories I d say that s a particular talent and accomplishment A few of the stories here are also included in the LOA edition but upon recognition I didn t skip over them I just read and enjoyed them again O Hara s breadth of researchknowledge is staggering Though sharp character portraits are always front and center O Hara always did his homework to make character background powerfully believable When it comes to covering the milieu of certain characters in particularly impressive detail I just don t know how the guy did it Most of these 32 stories are on the very short side Some run to 10 pages But none of them feel insignificant in terms of the territory they cover you feel you re told just what you need to know for basic but complete satisfaction and nothing But near the end of this volume there is a 50 page tale long for a short story but too short for a novella We re Friends Again It s probably my favorite in this collection as it illuminates what happens between a pair of married couples as well as some others on the periphery of their lives In almost snapshot fashion the story covers several decades and includes surprising storyline shifts ie participation in Resistance efforts during WWII This story showcases some of O Hara s most layered character analysisand it s simply marvelous

I 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 such a great volume of work all at once things I d probably never notice if I d had the time to read two or three stories between other things For the most part these are great and capture a certain time and mood in New York City mid century Its pre feminism Its pre birth control Women are limited to certain things which doesn t mean they don t have power it can only be exercised in a certain way Appearance marriage affairs all these things had social rules that wen or those that live in my bubble just don t think about any His portrayal of male friendship was interesting too Most of the married couples in the stories were not friends People according to O hara seemed to seek out friendship with the same gender though there were exceptions I also had just read a collection of Bobbie Ann Mason s short stories which were notable for the fact that they were much like sketches in that they did not necessarily have a neat story arc nor any arc whatsoever Older short stories have generally a beginning middle and end current short stories are less likely to follow a traditional format John O hara s work seems to be in that transitional period Some have the traditional arc a few with a lovely twist at the end but many are much open ended like modern writing
