Reading William Trevor

My daughter gave me William Trevor’s Selected Stories for Christmas a couple of years ago. I put it on the bookshelf and then forgot about it. So. I’m going to make it a goal to read the collection in 2012. I’ll list the title here as I read each story and then do a wrap-up at the end of the year.

About William Trevor (from the book cover): William Trevor was born in Middletown, County Cork, in 1928 and spent his childhood in provincial Ireland. He studied at Trinity College, Dublin. He is the author of fourteen novels and twelve collections of short stories and has won many prizes, including the Hawthornden Prize, the Yorkshire Post Book of the Year and the Whitbread Book of the Year Award. He lives in Devon, England.

  1. Ohhhhhh I love William Trevor’s short stories. I’m jealous that you have this pleasure ahead of you still – something to anticipate! His stories don’t always have happy endings, but the bittersweet qualities and gentle narratives a pure magic – happy reading.
