Michael O'Donovan was born in Cork, Ireland. He wrote under the name Frank O'Connor and his short stories have been admired for their oral quality and portrayals of Irish life. His many collections include "Guests of the Nation" (1931), "Bones of Contention and Other Stories" (1936) and "A Set of Variations" (1969). He also published poetry, criticism and translations of old Irish literature from the Gaelic. O'Donovan also worked as a librarian and was Director of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, Ireland.
