Categorization is odious. There is tremendous overlap among genres. These pigeonholes are offered only as a convenience.

John O'Hara's short stories, like William Somerset Maugham's are currently underrated. In sum, they may be more important than his novels, which get less and less interesting as they come along later and get longer. Make sure to read Imagine Kissing Pete.
