Praise for Last Stories

“Beautifully composed stories . . . [Trevor] has long established himself as a writer of great charity for the ordinary person and sympathy for the hard knocks of the unheralded lives . . . Trevor’s characterazations step to the fore as the major aspect of his writerly genius . . . Trevor will long reign as a literary master.”—Booklist (starred)

“Highly recommended.” —Library Journal (starred)
“As always, Trevor navigates the rough seas of human relations with a new angle, fresh language, deep sympathy, and uncanny insight.”—Kirkus Review (starred)

Praise for William Trevor

“He is one of the great short-story writers, at his best the equal of Chekhov.”—John Banville
“[William Trevor’s] stories are formally beautiful and, at the same time, interested in the smallness of human lives. He was, as a writer, watchful, unsentimental, alert to frailty and malice. A master craftsman.”—Anne Enright

“A beautiful writer… I would not have become a writer at all had I not discovered his work.”—Yiyun Li

“Extraordinary . . . Mr. Trevor’s sheer intensity of entry into the lives of his people . . . proceeds to uncover new layers of yearning and pain, new angles of vision and credible thought.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Trevor is probably the greatest living writer of short stories in the English language.”—The New Yorker

“Trevor is a master of delicacy and precision. He inhabits the skin of his lonely characters, mercilessly and compassionately revealing the moral and psychological complexities that lie beneath… [His] stories have the depth and dignity of Greek tragedies.”—The Washington Post

“One of the finest writers…in our language.”—The Boston Globe

“The indisputable master of twentieth-century fiction . . . Trevor’s carefully chiseled, lyrical prose–at once ironic and elegiac–is addictive, his insights acutely compassionate. The tales are haunting and profound.”—Publishers Weekly
