9780140145380: Brief Lives

Fay, celebrated ex-singer, meets the theatrical Julia and they begin a relationship of mutual distrust. It is a friendship sustained through loneliness, desperation and the morbid attraction of opposite characteristics as both women remain out of step with the time in which they live.

Product Description:

Brief Lives

Review:

One of Brookner's best novels ( Penelope Lively, The Observer)

Utterly absorbing . . . so great is Brookner's skill as a writer that you will find it difficult not to devour this brilliant novel at one long sitting. ( Daily Mail)

A subtle and thorough exploration of the relationship between nostalgia and old age . . . Brooker [is] one of the bravest novelists around. ( Jonathan Coe, Guardian)

Compression, economy and the ability to conjure up an entire personality with a few adroitly chosen words. Brief Lives is a perfect demonstration of these gifts. ( Penelope Lively, Evening Standard)
