I learned about Cormac MacConnell when I was reading McCarthy's Bar (which you'll find further down the list here). He's a brilliant storyteller and has the most playful way with words. I've written down and saved so many of the verbal images from this delightful book. I wish I could do what this guy does. Trust me, you'll feel like a kid, sitting at the knee of a twinkly-eyed grandfather when you read this one. Pure delight!
