William Trevor is
the master of the short story.  His Ireland is rural and largely
unchanged by the Celtic Tiger (which has now undergone a dramatic
reversal).  Spare and beautifully illuminating.

— Pat

Description


A marvelous collection from "the greatest living writer of short stories in the English language" ("The New Yorker").
Four-time winner of the O. Henry Prize, three-time winner of the Whitbread Prize, and five-time finalist for the Man Booker Prize, William Trevor is one of the most acclaimed authors of our time. Over a career spanning more than half a century, Trevor has crafted exquisitely rendered tales that brilliantly illuminate the human condition. Bringing together forty-eight stories from "After Rain, The Hill Bachelors, A Bit on the Side," and "Cheating at Canasta," this second volume of Trevor's collected fiction offers readers "treasures of gorgeous writing, brilliant dialogue, and unforgettable lives" ("The New York Times Book Review").
