Book Details
  • Author: William Trevor
  • Publisher: Penguin Books
  • Edition: Revised ed.
William Trevor has long been hailed as one of the greatest living writers of short story. In this collection of twelve dazzling, acutely rendered tales, he once again plumbs the depths of the human heart. Here we encounter a blind piano turner whose wonderful memories of his first wife are cruelly distorted by his second; a woman in a difficult marriage who must choose between her indignant husband and her closest friend; two children, survivors of divorce, who mimic their parents' melodramas; and a heartbroken woman traveling alone in Italy who experiences an epiphany while studying a forgotten artists's Annunciation.
