The beauty of these stories is that they convey emotional depth without being wordy William Trevor is a master at uncovering the complexities of human relationships hidden behind the mundane activities of the characters, even though the characters themselves say very little I am not sure I always side with the narrative point of view resignation acceptance of the character s fate , but I do enjoy the way the author succinctly describes the internal workings of these characters There is an ho The beauty of these stories is that they convey emotional depth without being wordy William Trevor is a master at uncovering the complexities of human relationships hidden behind the mundane activities of the characters, even though the characters themselves say very little I am not sure I always side with the narrative point of view resignation acceptance of the character s fate , but I do enjoy the way the author succinctly describes the internal workings of these characters There is an honesty here, in that the author lets his characters decide for themselves, rather than directing their actions for the sake of a complete ending, or for bringing a conclusion to a thematic statement If you like this collection, I recommend W Trevor s short novel The Story of Lucy Gault 2002 William Trevor is an astonishing writer These stories really are for lack of a better word sad These characters discover something about their lives and end up having to accept their fate The sense of heavy resignation the steady hopelessness of live is hard at times to read But Trevor does it so well and so honestly that he makes it hard to not go forward His stories are hard to put down And his pacing matches the gradual realization of his characters and their fate deliberate, William Trevor is an astonishing writer These stories really are for lack of a better word sad These characters discover something about their lives and end up having to accept their fate The sense of heavy resignation the steady hopelessness of live is hard at times to read But Trevor does it so well and so honestly that he makes it hard to not go forward His stories are hard to put down And his pacing matches the gradual realization of his characters and their fate deliberate, slow, forceful William Trevor has that uncanny ability to make the ordinary and extraordinary lie side by side as if they were born as twins, separated at birth and after many years apart find each other and wonder at how much they have in common The characters he creates are living, breathing, loving beings in a world that is real, in all its anguish, disappointment, excitement and joy Bodily Secrets is a great collection of his stories to whet your appetite forof the William Trevor world. I love William Trevor s stories spare, yet with such emotion packed into a few short words I was especially drawn to the title story, in which the widow O Neill defies expectations with somewhat unexpected results There s little enough happiness or at least lasting happiness in these stories, but they linger in my mind long after I move on to the next book. A slender collection of short stories by a fine writer, the collection revolves around the theme of relationships and yes, love At once tender and taut, it is a great little book that covers the whole gamut of emotions Recommended. He writes so well Little stories well told. It s ok Not too cerebral and wordy but not too deep either I liked some aspects of the stories but not any one fully, weirdly.
