"It's summer, and nothing much is happening in Rathmoye. So it doesn't go unnoticed when a dark-haired stranger begins photographing the mourners at Mrs. Connulty's funeral. Florian Kilderry couldn't know that the Connultys were said to own half the town; he has only come to Rathmoye to photograph the scorched remains of its burnt-out cinema. But Mrs Connulty's daughter, liberated at last by the death of her imperious mother, resolves to keep an eye on Florian Kilderry, and it's she who comes a witness to the events that follow." "A few miles out in the country, Dillahan, a farmer and decent man, continues to live with the knowledge that he was accidentally responsible for the deaths of his wife and baby. He has married again: Ellie is the young convent girl who came to work with him when he was widowed. She falls in with Florian Kilderry and, although he is planning to leave Ireland and begin all over again after what he considers to be a failed life, a dangerously reckless attachement develops between them." "In a characteristically masterful way, Trevor evokes the passions and frustrations in an Irish town during one long summer."--Jacket

The collected stories by William Trevor( Book )

48 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From his debut collection, The Day We Got Drunk on Cake, published in 1968, to Family Sins (1990), William Trevor has crafted the short story to perfection, giving us brilliant and subtle stories full of the reversals, surprises, and shadowy truths we discover in life itself. To read this volume is not just to encounter an extraordinary literary stylist, but to understand life as surely as though we were looking through the eyes of his protagonists and - deeper still - into their hearts. William Trevor: The Collected Stories includes the tales from his seven previous books, as well as four stories that have never appeared in book form in America. They depict the comforts and frustrations of life in rural Ireland, the complexities of family relationships, and the elusive grace of love. They portray the almost invisible strands that bind people to each other as well as the chains that imprison them in solitary yearning. Startling, funny, compassionate, and profound, William Trevor's stories engage and provoke us as only the best fiction can

"The beloved and acclaimed William Trevor's last ten stories. With a career that spanned more than half a century, William Trevor is regarded as one of the best writers of short stories in the English language. Now, in Last Stories, the master storyteller delivers ten exquisitely rendered tales--nine of which have never been published in book form--that illuminate the human condition and will surely linger in the reader's mind long after closing the book. Subtle yet powerful, Trevor gives us insights into the lives of ordinary people. We encounter a tutor and his pupil, whose lives are thrown into turmoil when they meet again years later; a young girl who discovers the mother she believed dead is alive and well; and a piano-teacher who accepts her pupil's theft in exchange for his beautiful music. This final and special collection is a gift to lovers of literature and Trevor's many admirers, and affirms his place as one of the world's greatest storytellers"--
