9780140234060: A Family Romance

A novel centring on the relationship between the classic Brookner heroine (only child, soon bereft of parents, alone in depressing flat) who becomes a feminist academic, and her pleasure-loving French aunt who's into men and bridge parties.

Review:

The novel is nearly as perfect an instance of its genre as it is reasonable to ask. (Frank Kermode, Spectator)

This is vintage Brookner: all exquisite understatement, acute observation and razor-sharp dissection of motive. (Time Out)

This small history unfolds slowly, with delicious wit or bitter pathos, and finally with a marvellous, lingering human resonance. (Sunday Express)

Compelling . . . some classic Brookner quality stays in the mind; questions hover, polite but uncomfortable, long after the final page. (Times Literary Supplement)
