- KurzbeschreibungThe writer John O&8217;Hara (1905-1970) came from Pottsville in Pennsylvania. He put his home town and the surrounding vicinity under a microscope to produce an account of &8216;The Anthracite Region&8217; that rivals Edith Wharton&8217;s descriptions of New York and Sinclair Lewis&8217;s anatomy of Sauk Centre. With the discerning eye of a local resident, O&8217;Hara recreated this coal-rich region and its people so well that his novelettes, novellas, novels, plays and short stories give a true record of his &8216;Pennsylvania Protectorate&8217; in the latter part of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century.<br> In order to reveal the ethnographical, geographical and historical authenticity of the O&8217;Hara Canon, this book examines his writings in the context of Pottsville and the borough of Tamaqua, as well as the nearby towns and villages. The author also investigates both O&8217;Hara&8217;s genteel upbringing and his gangster stratum. The book explores the many dimensions of O&8217;Hara&8217;s life from the time of his birth until his escape to New York City in 1928. New sources such as unpublished letters and interviews with O&8217;Hara&8217;s family, friends and enemies provide important insights into O&8217;Hara, as well as into Pottsville and the surrounding region.
