Overview

William Trevor has long been hailed as one of the greatest living writers of short fiction. These nineteen stories–selected by Trevor himself from The Collected Stories and After Rain–capture the nuances of rural and middle-class life in the Ireland he knows so well. Here are its people, their lives driven by love, faith, and duty, surviving in a culture that blends tradition with transformation. In spare and eloquent prose Trevor’s stories engage and provoke us as only the best fiction can.
