Reading Turgenev (in Two Lives) by William Trevor

Mary Louise Dallon lives outside a small Irish town, a daughter of one of its few Protestant families. Though she marries Elmer Quarry, it is her cousin Robert who captures her heart. Trevor is a writer with particular sensitivity for people who cannot manage as others do, his exquisite style uses laughter and pity in classic contemplations of the tidal dramas human flesh is heir to.
William Trevor was born in Cork.
