Review:

'Anita Brookner has staked out a distinctive territory ... and made it clear that she is one of the finest novelists of her generation.' (The New York Times)

'[Brookner's] prose is famously graceful, her understanding of human nature always keen .... A Closed Eye exhibits all of her elegance, subtlety of perception, and wistful tenderness.' (Newsday)

'Loneliness can hardly have been better portrayed ... This is Anita Brookner at her most sombre: yet not gloomy or depressing – the writing is too good.' (Financial Times)

Book Description:

From the winner of the 1984 Booker Prize and the author of Brief Lives, comes a story of loss and regret.
