With a career that spanned more than half a century, William Trevor is regarded as one of the best writers of short stories in the English language. Now, in Last Stories, the master storyteller delivers ten exquisitely rendered tales—nine of which have never been published in book form—that illuminate the human condition and will surely linger in the listener's mind. Subtle yet powerful, Trevor's stories give us insights into the lives of ordinary people. We encounter a tutor and his pupil, whose lives are thrown into turmoil when they meet again years later; a young girl who discovers the mother she believed dead is alive and well; and a piano-teacher who accepts her student's serial thefts in exchange for his beautiful music. This final and special collection is a gift to lovers of literature and Trevor's many admirers, and affirms his place as one of the world's greatest storytellers.

Editorial Reviews

Throughout these final stories from the masterly Trevor, limpid and clearly defined as dewdrops on a branch, we see characters dealing with the past and moving forward-or not. . . . Highly recommended. Library Journal Starred Review
