The Story of Lucy Gault by William Trevor
'''The Story of Lucy Gault' blends national and private heartache . . . [It] spans the history of Irish independence, opening in 1921 and closing when the people of a town the author calls Enniseala, in County Cork, can ''walk about the streets chatting on the telephone.' If Trevor fails to astonish us with the plausible way he makes 80 years pass in little more than 200 pages, that is only because he has spoiled us by doing this kind of thing so convincingly and often." --Thomas Mallon in the NYT.
