A writer of bewitching readability (The Times)
What makes this book gripping . . . is its truthfulness. It is a sort of detective story after all, with Brookner as the sleuth . . . applying her own devastating insight. (Sunday Times)
What a humorous and humane as well as accomplished artist she is. (London Review of Books)
Classic Brookner (The Times)
