O'Brien, about thirty years ago. A babe
What is it about you Irish writers? You can't stand Ireland. First it was Jimmy Joyce, who fled to Paris, Trieste, etc., and never returned. But spent the rest of his short life writing about—what else?—Ireland. Obsessedly.
Now Edna O'Brien, who escaped to London, years ago.
Well, thought I, there still is William Trevor. Irish to the core, living in the old country, writing about small town Irish in their timeless ways.
A recent short story by Trevor in The New Yorker reports that he resides in Dover.
Ah will The Troubles never end? I think not.
