A story in William Trevor’s new collection Cheating at Canasta bought me back to the summer of the moving statues. I can remember the discussions “There’s too many has seen it now for it be anything other than truth”.   Anyway, I, 14 at the time, believed in them, but I was fairly misguided on most fronts, including it would now seem basic facts about the shape of the planet and the possibility of marrying Boy George.

 For those who want to relive it here’s a radio documentary 20 years on.

 Here’s a link to the review I wrote of William Trevor’s new short story collection in The Globe and Mail
