Publisher Comments:

A new collection from ?the greatest living writer of short stories in the English language? (The New Yorker)

The publication of a new book by William Trevor is a true literary event. One of our finest chroniclers of the human condition, Trevor?s precise and unflinching insights into the lives of ordinary people are evidenced once again in this stunning collection of twelve stories. Subtle yet powerful, these exquisitely nuanced tales of regret, deception, adultery, aging, and forgiveness are a rare pleasure, and they confirm Trevor?s reputation as a master of the form. From a chance encounter between two childhood friends to memories of a newly widowed man to a family grappling with the sale of ancestral land, Trevor examines with grace and skill the tenuous bonds of our relationships, the strengths that hold us together, and the truths that threaten to separate us.

Synopsis:

"Cheating at Canasta" is the title story of Trevor's new collection, his first since the highly acclaimed "A Bit on the Side." This work of short stories explores the themes of missed opportunities, the inevitability of change, and the powerful but fragmentary quality of memories.
