Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Maud Gonthier yearns for an escape from the cocoon of the bourgeois modesty. The splendid, caddish David Tyler appears to offer one. In this stylish, deeply knowing novel by the author of Hotel du Lac, Maud's seduction creates a chemistry of longing, sensuality, and betrayal--with a surprising climax. 240 pp.

Review:

"The author is surely one of the most gifted among prose stylists writing fiction today, and it is therefore not surprising that one recent critic observed, 'If Henry James were around, the only writer he'd be reading with complete approval would be Anita Brookner.' Her 15th novel is the same novel she writes over and over again, in different versions, a doleful tale told with a delicate sense of humor in language uncommonly elegant and penetrating." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
