About the author (1993)

Liam O'Flaherty (aka Liam Flaithearta) was a significant Irish novelist and short story writer and a major figure in the Irish literary renaissance, born August 28, 1896, died September 7, 1984. At the age of 12, he went to Rockwell College. This was followed by enrollments at Holy Cross and University College, Dublin. In 1923, O'Flaherty published his first novel, Thy Neighbour's Wife, thought to be one of his best. In 1935, his novel The Informer (for which he had been awarded the 1925 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction) was made into a film by John Ford.
