02An Idyll In Winter20180529

Hattie Morahan reads William Trevor's story of a life-lasting love.

Readings from modern classics, new works by leading writers and world literature

A cartographer returns to an isolated house on the moors where he once passed an idyllic summer tutoring, and reignites a life lasting love.

An Idyll in Winter is the second of five stories from William Trevor's final and posthumous collection, published this week to coincide with what would have been his 90th Birthday. Often described as the master of the short story, revered by his fellow writers and by his readers, these stories written in the last years of his life contain all his hallmarks; his piercing observation of human life, his humanity, his elegant prose and his distinctive voice.
