Journal Entry 1 by wingDove-i-Libriwing from Fort Myers, Florida USA on Saturday, August 04, 2018
This book has been in the house for many years, it has probably moved house with us at least three times! I'm reading it now. It's short stories, so it's going quickly. Will share it when I'm done.

Overview
A Bit on the Side by William Trevor


In these twelve stories, a waiter divulges a shocking life of crime to his ex-wife; a woman repeats the story of her parents’ unstable marriage after a horrible tragedy; a schoolgirl regrets gossiping about the cuckolded man who tutors her; and, in the volume’s title story, a middle-aged accountant offers his reasons for ending a love affair. At the heart of this stunning collection is Trevor’s characteristic tenderness and unflinching eye for both the humanizing and dehumanizing aspects of modern urban and rural life.
