The Short Stories of William Trevor
“Trevor is probably the greatest living writer of short stories in the English language.” —The New Yorker
“One of the finest writers now at work in our language. . .No writer practicing the form today moves with nimbler assurance than Trevor across such an impressive gamut of social types and emotional connections.”
— The Boston Globe
“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
We will be reading from William Trevor’s Selected Stories (2010), now available at Accent on Books, on Merrimon Avenue, at discounted price, thanks to parishioner Lewis Sorrells.
