Reviews

PRAISE FOR JOSEPH O'CONNOR

"Joseph O'Connor has a great eye for the absurd in common things, a great ear for the comic in ordinary speech. His writing is terrific."--Roddy Doyle

PRAISE FOR THE SALESMAN

"Powerful . . . freewheeling and supple, switching between the comic, the candid, and the profane."--The New York Times Book Review

"Gripping . . . O'Connor's dialogue is by turns bristling and bleak, tender and funny, and his characters are free of stereotypes."--The Wall Street Journal
