William Trevor: Happy Birthday
I still remember the very first time I put on glasses.
Until then, for some time, I used to press my eyes, to see the speed signs properly on the road.
While I was reading a book, sometimes I used to bring it too close to my eyes without even knowing.
So when I went to the doctor, he gave me these glasses. And after that I found out, the world around me was not as blurry as it seemed to be!
William Trevor, is just like my new pair of glasses, with power.
Reading Trevor means I could see more. Those small letters, printed on the pages are able to paint lives with thousand of colours.
Using the same old humans of this same old earth, he tells us brand new stories.
Happy birthday, dear maestro.
