The Searching Glance in Penzance

A visit to Cornwall in Springtime and the fabulous independent Morrab Library for a reading from The Searching Glance and a talk. The Cornishman newspaper gave the event a lovely write-up. In particular I liked the reference to William Trevor's definition of the short story - "I think it is the art of the glimpse. If the novel is like an intricate Renaissance painting, the short story is an Impressionist painting. It should be an explosion of truth."
