Irish writer William Trevor died this earlier this week at the age of 88. Trevor explored his characters—and their often unfortunate fates—with great compassion, limning the contours of human loneliness and sadness. Many of his short stories and novels are set in his native Ireland, some contemporary and some historical. Others are set in England, where he lived for most of his adult life. Several of his stories and novels have been made into TV plays or movies, including Felicia's Journey and My House in Umbria. But do read some of Trevor's work to appreciate the unique bittersweet pleasure of his writing. Dip into Selected Stories, or the two short novels in Two Lives. Check Our Catalog for a more complete list of Trevor's work.
