Fools of Fortune by William Trevor - a classic early novel from one of the world's greatest writers
Winner of the Whitbread Prize for Best Novel of the Year
Murder and revenge during the Irish Civil War
The Quintons have lived in the old house in Cork for hundreds of years. Though Anglo-Irish Protestant, they sympathize with the cause of independence and secretly fund Michael Collins' fighters. But one of their workers is an informer to the British, and when he's murdered on their land, though they know nothing of it, the Black and Tans come seeking revenge.
Till now young Willy Quinton has led a pleasant, cosseted life. But the murder of his father and sisters by British soldiers brings him to a point when he can only contemplate revenge himself. He sets off for Liverpool with hatred in his heart. Will he survive? Will the cycle ever be broken?
'To my mind William Trevor's best novel and a very fine one' Graham Greene
