Sinopsis:

The Children Of Dynmouth - a classic prize-winning novel by William Trevor William Trevor's The Children of Dynmouth (Winner of the Whitbread Award and shortlisted for the Booker Prize) was first published in 1976 and is a classic account of evil lurking in the most unlikely places. In it we follow awkward, lonely, curious teenager Timothy Gedge as he wanders around the bland seaside town of Dynmouth. Timothy takes a prurient interest in the lives of the adults there, who only realise the sinister purpose to which he seeks to put his knowledge too late. 'A small masterpiece of understatement ... a work of rare compassion' Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times If you enjoyed The Story of Lucy Gault and Love and Summer, you will love this book.

In 2002 he was knighted for his services to literature.
