Though Anglo-Irish Protestant, they sympathize with the cause of independence and secretly fund Michael Collins' fighters. But one of their workers is an informer to the British, and when he's murdered on their land, though they know nothing of it, the Black and Tans come seeking revenge. Till now young Willy Quinton has led a pleasant, cosseted life. But the murder of his father and sisters by British soldiers brings him to a point when he can only contemplate revenge himself. He sets off for Liverpool with hatred in his heart. Will he survive? Will the cycle ever be broken?

He spent his childhood in Ireland and was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, but has lived in England for many years. An acknowledged master of the short-story form, he has also written many highly acclaimed novels: he has won the Whitbread Fiction Prize three times and been shortlisted for the Booker Prize four times. His most recent novel was Love and Summer (Penguin, 2010).

William Trevor is a master of contemporary fiction. He writes with equal authority about the frustrations of life in remote corners of Ireland, and the hollowness of life is prosperous London suburbs. An Anglo-Irishman, Trevor is admired on both sides of the Atlantic, and both sides of the Irish Sea. In William Trevor: A Study of His Fiction, first published in 1990, Gregory Schirmer analyses Trevor’s novels (such as A Standard of Behaviour and Fools of Fortune) and short stories in detail. He argues that Trevor’s writing is important, both in terms of its mastery of fictional techniques and of the profoundly moral vision that informs it. His view of twentieth-century men and women is subtle and complex, generated by the tension between a humanistic faith in compassion and "connection", and an opposing, more realistic assessment of contemporary society as alienated and disconnected.

Ormsby-Lennon approaches William Trevor, widely acknowledged as the greatest living writer of short fiction in English, as the creator of fools, characters who need to make up stories in order to understand lives over which they have no control. Ormsby-Lennon (Villanova U.) calls his study an exercise in how to read a short story by William Trevor
