With the same compassionate insight and stylistic brilliance that have won her comparisons with Jane Austen and Henry James, the Booker Prize-winning author of Hotel du Lac and Brief Lives explores the self-inflicted paradoxes in the life of Harriet Lytton, a woman whose powers of submissiveness and self-denial are suddenly tested by the dizzying prospect of sexual awakening.

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

"If Henry James were around, the only writer he'd be reading with complete approval would be Anita Brookner. A Closed Eye is [a] marvel of ease and clarity, and precision." -- The New York Times Book Review

"[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

"Stiletto-sharp powers of observation...[Brookner] offers amusement akin to the slightly illicit pleasure of sitting down to lunch with a clever and malicious gossip. Indiscretions will be revealed, unhappiness and tragedy hinted at, and you will be...hungry for more." -- Chicago Tribune
Book Description:
From the winner of the 1984 Booker Prize and the author of Brief Lives, comes a story of loss and regret.
