Prof. Hugh Ormsby-Lennon: Fools of Fiction: Reading William Trevor's Stories

The Kindle edition of English department professor Hugh Ormsby-Lennon and Margaret Boerner's study of renowned Irish writer William Trevor, Fools of Fiction: Reading William Trevor's Stories, is available here.  The authors, in the words of Maureen O’Connor of University College Cork, "provide a fresh assessment of William Trevor, one of the greatest short-story writers Ireland has produced."  Because of Fools of Fiction, says O'Connor, "New readers will rush to discover the stories, while those familiar with Trevor will return to them with renewed enthusiasm."
