“After the historical sweep of his last novel, The Story of Lucy Gault, Mr. Trevor returns with his 11th collection of short fiction, featuring small, quiet portraits of infidelity, disappointed lives and loneliness.”
Joel Topcik (The New York Times)
William Trevor is truly a Chekhov for our age, and a new collection of stories from him is always a cause for celebration. In these twelve stories, a waiter divulges his shocking life of crime to his ex-wife; a woman repeats the story of her parents’ unstable marriage after a horrible tragedy; a schoolgirl regrets gossiping about the cuckolded man who tutors her; and, in the volume’s title story, a middle-age accountant offers his reasons for ending a love affair.
At the heart of this stunning collection is Trevor’s characteristic tenderness and unflinching eye for both the humanizing and dehumanizing aspects of modern urban and rural life.
