Lester Goran's first book of short stories, Tales from the Irish Club, was chosen by the New York Times Book Review as a "Notable Book of the Year 1996." This second collection also centers around a group of men and women in an Irish-American enclave in Pittsburgh, primarily during the years surrounding World War II, but extending at times into the eighties. With evocative settings and narratives ranging from the supernatural to the humorous, from bawdy hilarity to richly detailed realism, Goran creates once more his world of poignant and magical times and places within the mundane affairs of ordinary men and women. With his mastery of language and images he shows again what Paul West has termed "the lunatic sadness of things."As the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette noted in its review of Tales from the Irish Club, "His many characters come alive with an immediacy and clarity that makes their stories seem like today's gossip." She Loved Me Once and Other Stories is a worthy successor to that book.

anthologies,fiction,humanities,literary,literature,literature and fiction,short stories,textbooks, The Ancient Order of Hibernians, Division 9, located on Pittsburgh's Oakland Avenue, was officially an Irish club, but in fact, just about everyone in the neighborhood could join--and did. Though the club closed down for good in 1965, its memory lives on in the fiction of Lester Goran, a former member of the Irish Club and a consummate storyteller. Goran insists that everything he knows about writing, he learned from listening to club habitués; whether or not this is true, Goran honors his roots with a collection of stories entitled She Loved Me Once. Set during the 1940s and '50s, the stories in She Loved Me Once are populated mostly by sad-sack characters whose lives have known more failure than success, whose own stories are sandbags against a flood of despair, and who can always be counted on to stand a stranger a drink and hear his sad tale in turn. Though many of these stories are connected to the Irish Club and its members, each stands alone. Some of the best are narrated by Goran's alter-ego, Clifton Clowers, a Jewish patron of the club. She Loved Me Once is old-fashioned storytelling at its best: strong on plot and character, embued with the ambience of a time gone by.

Lester Goran's second collection centers around a group of men and women in an Irish-American enclave in Pittsburgh, primarily during the years surrounding World War II, but extending at times into the eighties. With evocative settings and narratives ranging from the supernatural to the humorous, from bawdy hilarity to richly detailed realism, Goran creates once more his world of poignant and magical times and places within the mundane affairs of ordinary men and women. Goran writes of characters in a time and place of relatively stable circumstances: the young woman who thinks her smile mesmerizes all manner of men in dangerous "Lorelei" fascination; three adventuresome youths who take on the responsibilities of working as professional pallbearers in a very strange cemetery; Light Culhane, who failed at every possible human endeavor except having a beautiful woman fall forever in love with him; the man who talked too much about his sexual liaisons and lived to regret it; Desmond's sister, who devises a rare medical program to save her dying brother; and other misfits, saints, braggarts, straight arrows, and geniuses.
