    1. This weekend I was re-reading some of these stories and it reinforced my opinion that William Trevor is right up there with Sean O' Faolain and Frank O' Connor as an absolute master of the short story form. His stories tend a little more towards the bittersweet - one is less likely to encounter a story as overtly comical as O' Connor's "First Confession", or O' Faolain's "Dividends".

    2. I've been a William Trevor fan for a few years now, and Ireland is doing nothing to challenge my status as such. Trevor's lyrical style is at once deft and blunt, but can at turns also be delicate and heartbreaking in a way that only the Irish can.
