"How wise and wry and funny and morally astute an observer of the human comedy he is." —The New York Times Book Review

After Rain is a stunning collection from a master of the short form. In these stories Trevor explores the themes of love, compromise, and above all loss, in its various forms. With his elegant and straightforward prose he treats us to all too real depictions of the inner life, and heartbreaking renderings of interpersonal relationships. For me "Lost Ground" is the masterpiece of this collection, though somewhat out of sync with the rest of the stories. Other highlights include "Timothy's Birthday" and "Gilbert's Mother", but every story here is well worth the read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
