The Collected Stories Giftset



'These stories stay in the mind long after they've finished' William Boyd

William Trevor's Collected Stories was published in 1992 to great acclaim. Since then he has published four new collections: After Rain, The Hill Bachelors, A Bit on the Side and Cheating at Canasta. The stories from these later collections have now been added to those in the 1992 book, to make two highly collectable volumes containing the complete shorter fiction of 'the greatest living writer of short stories' (John Banville).
