Death in Summer
Thursday, December 7, 2023 – 12:00pm
William Trevor’s short novel is chilling, yet written with the quiet compassion and artistry that define Trevor’s fiction. “There were three deaths that summer. The first was Letitia’s, sudden and quite unexpected, leaving behind her husband and the baby. The next death came weeks later, after interviews for a nanny to bring up their baby. None of the applicants were suitable—least of all the last one, with her sharp features and her shabby clothes that reeked of cigarettes—so Letitia’s mother moved herself in. But then, the last of the nannies surprisingly returned, her unwelcome arrival heralding the third of the summer tragedies.
