Denis Sampson explores John McGahern's discovery of art as a young man and traces the development of his signature vision and style. Sampson considers McGahern's early efforts as an apprentice novelist and weaves the inner story of the composition of his acclaimed first novel The Barracks into a narrative of imaginative formation.
After studying literature in University College, Dublin, Denis Sampson moved to Montreal, where he earned a Ph.D. at McGill University. He has lived and worked in Montreal since the 1970s but returns to spend part of each year in Ireland. He is the author of Outstaring Nature's Eye: The Fiction of John McGahern (1993) and Brian Moore: The Chameleon Novelist (1998). He also writes personal essays (memoir and travel), book reviews, and literary features, broadcasts on the radio, and gives talks and public lectures.
