William Trevor is my favorite Irish author & I always try to read his latest book. Love & Summer is my favorite so far. It is small but is such a wonderful piece in his whole body of work. It is a perfect example of the tragic Irish spirit. This is a love story between the young second wife of a widower. He is a quiet Irish farmer, & she is left alone too much. A young photographer comes to town to sell his recently departed parents home & starts an affair with her which he only intends to last the sumer. I can't believe this didn't win any awards this year, it is that beautiful.
