A husband sits in Harry's Bar in Venice, thinking of his wife-lost to him now-whose plea has brought him back to one of their favourite haunts. At another table, a young couple quarrel. Cheating at Canasta is the title story of William Trevor's new collection, his first since the highly acclaimed A Bit on the Side, and its themes of missed opportunities, the inevitability of change and the powerful but fragmentary quality of our memories are entirely characteristic of his unparalleled oeuvre.
