Beschreibung

Portrait

John McGahern was born in Dublin in 1934 and brought up in the north western part of what is now the Republic of Ireland. He worked as a Primary School teacher, and became a full time writer in 1965. For much of his life he lived in Country Leitrim, near his childhood home. The author of six highly acclaimed novels and four collections of short stories, he was the recipient of numerous awards and honours, including a Society of Authors Travelling Scholarship, the American-Irish Award, the Prix Etrangere Ecureuil and the Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Amongst Women, which won both the GPA and the Irish Times Award, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and made into a four-part BBC television series. His work appeared in anthologies and has been translated into many languages. In 2005, his autobiography Memoir won the South Bank Literature Award and confirmed his reputation as one of the outstanding writers of our time. John McGahern died in 2006.
