Elizabeth Strout on her selection: 

William Trevor is brilliant at capturing the nuances of many people's perspectives, all in one story, as he does in this story of a young woman is who just reaching adulthood.  We see her sorrows, confusions, and the poignancy of all the characters involved.  Trevor is a wonder in his ability to portray characters without his own judgment ever intervening, he just tells us what we need to know—and then we can weep as well.
