FLYCATCHER by Elleston Trevor
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Oct. 1, 1994

"A bad day's work from the usually reliable Trevor (The Sister, 1993, etc.): This overheated, undernourished rip-off makes its middlebrow models, Rebecca and Eyes of Laura Mars, look like Dostoyevsky."

BOOK REVIEW

DEATH IN SUMMER by William Trevor
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 1998

"Trevor suggests character with the ease of a single gesture or detail, and his narrative instincts are, as usual, dead-on, providing just enough melodramatic intrigue to propel his studies in interior life."

ELIZABETH ALONE by William Trevor
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 25, 1974

"And as a story — it's irresistible."
