From the pre-eminent author of Felicia’s Journey and Death in Summer, the first major collection of stories since the highly acclaimed After Rain.

With understatement and startling precision William Trevor writes about longing and sadness, the loving and the lonely, those who barely have control over their lives and those who have something to hide. Whether writing of the dying of a day, a love or a way of life, Trevor tells a story of such distilled beauty and intelligence that humanity illuminates even its darkest corners. Eloquent, subtle and brilliantly crafted, The Hill Bachelors will hold a beloved place amongst William Trevor’s award-winning body of work and shows the master of short stories at the height of his game.
