William Trevor was born in 1928 in Mitchelstown, County Cork, Ireland. He spent his childhood in provincial Ireland and attended Irish secondary schools before entering Trinity College. He has written many prize-winning novels and collections of short stories. In 1992 Trevor's THE COLLECTED STORIES from his first seven smaller collections was chosen by the NY Times as one of the best books of the year. And now his second volume of stories has achieved the same award.
"...unforgettable lives" not dysfunctional families. A vivid, almost painful at times, picture of relationships in a setting evoking a strong sense of place....especially the stories set in rural and small-town Ireland.
For a smaller volume of stories, may I suggest the Penguin paperback (1998) entitled Ireland? It contains my two favorite Trevor stories--"The Paradise Lounge" and "The Ballroom of Romance."
Irishman John Banville, Booker award-winner, called Trevor the "greatest living writer of short stories," and I agreed, thinking maybe his pick for "greatest writer of short stories in English" would be James Joyce Dubliners. And wondering what he thought of other favorites, Elizabeth Bowen Collected Stories and Frank O'Connor Collected Stories.
