Summary of William Trevor Summary of William Trevor Reviews for William Trevor An Excerpt from William Trevor

William Trevor is one of the renowned figures in contemporary literature, described as ‘the greatest living writer of short stories in the English language’ by the New Yorker and acclaimed for his haunting and profound insights into the human heart. Here is the ultimate collection of his short fiction, with dozens of tales spanning his career and ranging from the moving to the macabre, the humorous to the haunting. From the penetrating ‘Memories of Youghal’ to the bittersweet ‘Bodily Secrets’ and the elegiac ‘Two More Gallants’, here are masterpieces of insight, depth, drama and humanity, acutely rendered by a modern master.
