From Publishers Weekly
Tales from Trevor's seven highly acclaimed short-story collections tell of life in rural Ireland.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.
“Extraordinary . . . Mr. Trevor’s sheer intensity of entry into the lives of his people . . . proceeds to uncover new layers of yearning and pain, new angles of vision and credible thought.”
—The New York Times Book Review
“One of the finest writers now at work in our language . . . No writer practicing the form today moves with nimbler assurances than Trevor across such an impressive gamut of social types and emotional connections.”
—The Boston Globe
“The indisputable master of twentieth-century fiction . . . Trevor’s carefully chiseled, lyrical prose—at once ironic and elegiac—is addictive, his insights acutely compassionate. The tales are haunting and profound.”
“A textbook for anyone who ever wanted to write a story, and a treasure for anyone who loves to read them.”
—Madision Smartt Bell, USA Today
“The range of characters that Trevor manages to bring onstage is little short of astonishing. . . . A remarkable record of the distinctive imprint that Trevor has left on what is arguably this century’s quintessential art form.”
—New York Newsday

The common man lives, then dies but does not do either without angst and fear! The choices one makes must be reconciled with the life that is led! William Trevor makes each of us consider the choices made and often thank God that we were not positioned in life to make the choices his characters were challenged to make!
