Praise

“There is no better short story writer in the English-speaking world.”—Wall Street Journal

“Everyone will have his own list of the best short stories. Mine includes most of Chekhov, one or two by James Joyce, a dozen or more from D. H. Lawrence and — in this same vein — a healthy selection from William Trevor. This Irish-born, English-domiciled writer, who is also an excellent novelist, gave us his ”Collected Stories” a few years back. Now, as if to assure us that the well is far from dry, he offers a luminously disturbing new collection, ”After Rain.” — Wendy Lesser, The New York Times Book Review

“The deft handling of information, as well as the exquisite sense of control, again show Trevor as a brilliant master of his craft.” – Publishers Weekly (Starred) 

“Dependably brilliant work from one of Chekhov’s most accomplished disciples.” – Kirkus Reviews
