A modern master the Real PDFEPUB #196 of the short story brings his precise and compassionate observations to bear on his own life in a book of recollections that is at once funny poignant and revealing As William Trevor records his migration from the shabby genteel precin. The foreknowledge that one is about to learn about one’s favourite short story writer was exciting Now having just put it down I must say while I have learned a lot about William Trevor this is one of the most unusual biographies I have ever read Does it tell you about his life The answer is a define Yes but it’s than that I felt I was reading another of his collection of short stories; each chapter is a story unto itself The characters introduced are as interesting as any he has introduced to us in his work in just a few lines he makes us interested in a character and leaves us wanting to know That is a special gift I loved the early stories of his youth and education at Trinity College Dublin His middle stories are prosaic and somewhat esoteric and we again are introduced to a set of characters that peak our interest The conclusion is in Venice and as usual leaves me wanting It was only after completing the book that I discovered these were first written as essays and while they mesh together to give a view of a life I do look forward to reading his biography but maybe this is all he wants us to know It’s biographical a travelogue reflections on other writers musings and on misc characters its sad when he speaks of his parents and their struggles its overall a great read and highly recommended
