Review:

" Each new Brookner novel...guarantees the pleasures of a mature intelligence, felicitous language, quirky humor, intensely believable characters, bitter-sweet karma and shapely narrative....A brilliantly executed novel."
-- Phillip Lopate,
The New York Times Book Review" Anita Brookner never ceases to surprise. In this sly and delectable fiction...an artist has extended her range." -Boston Globe
" Confirms Anita Brookner's reputation as a novelist....There is a solemn felicity, a classical sense of fairness inherent in Lewis Percy. This, with the author's sane humor, told in her elegant, lucid prose, combines to make something truly remarkable."
-- San Francisco Chronicle
