Three Early Novels: The Old Boys, the Boarding-House, the Love Department Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In one volume for the first time, three of William Trevor's early novels that established his name as a master of the genre. In The Old Boys, a group of septuagenarians revive schoolboy conflicts in the election of the President of the Association. In The Boarding-House, Mr Bird takes in boarders whom society would never miss - if it ever noticed they were around. Then he makes a fatal mistake: he dies. From the offices of The Love Department, Lady Dolores cures the heartaches of the lonely wives of Wimbledon with inimitable flourish and finesse.

Synopsis:

In these early novels, one of the acclaimed masters of 20th century fiction creates dark and compassionate characters that have become hallmarks of William Trevor's literary career.
