Citações Philip Ó Ceallaigh
„I called the boss a ‘fucker’ one day – not to his face, but it got back to him – so that was the end.“
— Philip Ó Ceallaigh
On life, on his time spent as a waiter.
„The ‘novel’ is a publishing convention that deforms the story. If more attention were given to form there would be fewer novels and better stories. There's no reason a publisher can’t put out a story that's a hundred or even seventy pages long. But a publisher will look at a story like that as defective novel, ineligible for shortlists. It should be in a collection. Or pumped full of air, turned into a novel… It's a pity. You see some good writers behaving like performing monkeys.“
