Description
In William Trevor's first novel, The Old Boys, a group of septuagenarians' revive schoolboy conflicts in the election of the President of the Association. But now that they possess a fiercer understanding of the things in life that matter -- power, revenge, hatred, love, and the failure of love -- intrigue and deceit result. In his second novel, The Boarding House, William Wagner Bird takes in boarders whom society would never miss. With these misfits, Trevor has created a world where people are identified by their quirks rather than by their character. In his third novel, The Love Department, Lady Delores cures the heartaches of the lonely wives of Wimbledon with inimitable flourish and finesse. When her newest protege, Edward Blakeston-Smith is sent on a mission to discover the secrets of seductive and scheming Septimus Tuam and stop him in his tracks -- he learns about love and its friends and enemies.

In these early novels, one of the acclaimed masters of twentieth-century fiction created dark and compassionate characters that have become hallmarks of his extraordinary literary career.
