    William Trevor is truly a Chekhov for our age, and a new collection of stories from him is always a cause for celebration.

    Kathleen says: "Writing of the highest order"
    "Trevor at his best"
    Overall

    Those who have read the great stories of William Trevor in the New Yorker and elsewhere will not be disappointed with this selection. Here is Trevor at his mature best. And, oh yes, you do have to listen carefully. Trevor does not write for lazy readers, and lazy listeners in the audio format will just have to listen over again. But listening a second time is actually recommended for all. There is nothing like great fiction like this to learn what the Irish heart is and how it feels.

    Story

    During a trip to Europe, Christopher Newman, a wealthy American businessman, asks the charming Claire de Cintre to be his wife. To his dismay, he receives an icy reception from the heads of her family, who find Newman to be a vulgar example of the American privileged class. Brilliantly combining elements of comedy, tragedy, romance and melodrama, this tale of thwarted desire vividly contrasts nineteenth-century American and European manners.

    Susan Case says: "The American"
    "Great book, poor reader"
    Overall

    My great pleasure in listening to this title could have been even greater if the reader had known how to pronounce French words.
