I love short stories and William Trevor may be one of my favorite short story writers. I'd read the story "An Afternoon" before and it felt even stronger in context of the others. I enjoy the way Trevor writes middle aged-ennui, the sadness, the resignation, and the beauty as well. It's been said before and I'll say it again....William Trevor is a master of the form.
