DescriptionFelicia, young and pregnant, steals away from a small Irish town to search for her boyfriend in the industrial sprawl of the English Midlands, where she falls in with the fat, fiftyish, unfailingly reasonable Mr. Hilditch. He is looking for a new friend to join the five other girls of his Memory Lane. But the strange, sad, terrifying tricks of chance unravel both his and Felicia's delusions in a story more resonant than ever with Trevor's "impeccable strength and piercing profundity" (Washington Post Book World).

About the Author
--The Philadelphia Inquirer "Felicia's Journey is packed with extraordinary passages."
"A battle for the soul, waged between the forces of good and evil . . . Mr. Trevor shows just how wise and wry and funny and morally astute an observer of the human comedy he is."
--Patrick McGrath, The New York Times Book Review
"A thriller lifted to the level of high art . . ."
"In thirteen novels and eight short-story collections [William Trevor] has shown himself a close observer, a fine stylist, a master psychologist. In Felicia's Journey . . . he brings all these qualities into play, and adds to them a teasing manipulation of the reader's sensibilities, so that the book has the elegant tensions of a high-class thriller."
--The New York Review of Books
"One of the very best writers of our era."
--The Washington Post Book World
