BOOK DESCRIPTION : Very Rare 1990, Bodley Head 1st Edition (presumed 1st impression) blue cloth hardback with original dustjacket; SIGNED by William Trevor on the title page; 250+ pages with 12 short stories; in Near Fine/Fine Condition. William Trevor is widely recognised as one of the few outstanding masters of the short story in the 20th century. His stories reveal an insight into the human condition and human relationships. His approach to his characters is one of compassion, and to the situations that they find themselves in one of pathos lightened by humour. These 12 stories show an imaginative range of situations and scenarios. In the story which gives its title to this collection, a friendship withers when an innocent cousin is made the instrument of a grandson's revenge; in 'Events of Drimaghleen', a multiple murder in a rural community is exploited by the press and a local family clothed anew in enduring pain; in 'The Printmaker', a stifled passion and the events of a single summer's afternoon haunt a young woman artist for the rest of her life; in 'In Love with Ariadne', a young girl inherits the shame of her father's suicide and is consigned to a convent life empty of human love. The other stories are : The Third Party, A Trinity, Honeymoon in Tramore, Coffee with Oliver, A Husband's Return, Children of the Headmaster, August Saturday, Kathleen's Field.
