This is a very good novel which must be read with more attention and thought than most literary novels; there are often quick little shifts in point of view, and the phrases are often understating and implicative. At moments I thought this was a master performance of the deft use of a writing technique where one writes something and then deletes every second sentence, carefully leaving a lot not explicitly written but leaving enough to be inferred by a thoughtful reader.

Pitch perfect. Trevor's writing just fills me with wonder.

William Trevor is a master of fiction - and he is now 86 years old ! This is a nice companion to "Love and summer ".
