About the Author

William Trevor was born in Mitchelstown, County Cork, and spent his childhood in provincial Ireland. He studied at Trinity College, Dublin. He is the author of twenty-nine books, including Felicia's Journey, which won the Whitbread Book of the Year Award and was made into a motion picture, and The Story of Lucy Gault, which was shortlisted for both the Man Booker Prize and the Whitbread Fiction Prize. In 1996 he was the recipient of the Lannan Award for Fiction. In 2001, he won the Irish Times Literature Prize for fiction. Two of his books were chosen by The New York Times as best books of the year, and his short stories appeared regularly in The New Yorker. In 1997, he was named Honorary Commander of the British Empire.

Reviews

"Two Lives offers two superb novels in one volume . . . as rich and moving as anything I have read in years. . . . Marvelous." --The Guardian

"A sensibility reigns here which is at once inquisitive and loving. . . . Trevor's is among the most subtle and sophisticated fiction being written today." --John Banville, The New York Review of Books

"A writer at the peak of his powers; [Two Lives] reminds you what good reading is all about." --Anne Tyler, Chicago Sun Times

"One of the most beautiful and memorable things Trevor has written." --Hermione Lee, The Independent on Sunday (U.K.)

"These novels will endure. And in every beautiful sentence there is not a word out of place." --Anita Brookner, The Spectator (U.K.)

"Trevor's adroit playing-off of two worlds in each of the Two Lives--the sterile and the sublime--enables him to balance humor and heartbreak in perfect equilibrium." --John Walsh, The Sunday Times (London)

"He writes like an angel, but is determined to wring your heart . . . Trevor at his most evocative and haunting." --The Daily Mail (U.K.)
