Join our vibrant exchange on master storyteller William Trevor’s Last Stories (Viking, 2018). This short story collection has ten exquisitely rendered tales that illuminate the human condition. The striking beginnings and often enigmatic endings set the scene for lively discussions, fresh perspectives, and keen insights. The New York Times Book Review states: “The great Irish writer, who died in 2016 at the age of 88, captured turning points in individual lives with effective understatement. This seemingly quiet but ultimately volcanic collection is his final gift to us, and it is filled with action sprung from human feeling.” We will read two or three stories weekly with each story discussion led by a study group member.
