Last Stories: Kevin Barry, Hermione Lee, Di Speirs & Salley Vickers on William Trevor

‘There’s a great saying of William Blake’s: if you would do good, do it in minute particulars - and I feel that’s something that William Trevor understood.’

In celebration of the life, work and legacy of William Trevor, one of the giants of modern Irish fiction, authors Salley Vickers, Kevin Barry, Hermione Lee and BBC Radio 4 Books Editor Di Speirs read from and discussed their favourites of his novels and short fiction, to mark the publication of Last Stories (Viking). Trevor, who died in 2016, won the Whitbread prize three times, was five times shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and in 2014 was made Saoi by Aosdána, Ireland’s most prestigious artistic award.
