Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Indisputably one of the finest and most prolific English novelists of our generation, Anita Brookner is a connoisseur and shrewd analyst of loneliness. In this her 17th novel, the author continues to penetrate the pathos of old age. In the twilight of life, Dorothea May spends 'solemn hours, hours of infinite recall of the mind on automatic pilot, throwing up fragments of conversations decades old, or memories of a school-friend not seen for even longer' until she is confronted by the carefree young Steven Best, who puts her life in a new perspective. Although the compass of Ms. Brookner's novels is inevitably small, the prose always delights in its music and nuance. Admirers of her work will once again turn to her craft with pleasure." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
