Last Stories by William Trevor


In this final collection of ten exquisite, perceptive and profound stories, William Trevor probes into the depths of the human spirit. Here 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 pupil’s theft in exchange for his beautiful music.

These gorgeous stories – the last that Trevor wrote before his death – affirm his place as one of the world’s greatest storytellers.
