By the winner of the 1984 Booker Prize and the author of Brief Lives, this story evokes loss and regret. Harriet, who felt excluded from love even as a child, marries a contemporary of her father. When she meets her friend's young husband, she is instantly aware of the compromises she has made.

Review:
A bravura performance (Observer)

Anita Brookner's eleventh novel is one of her best . . . She is a great writer. And her final pages, which unfold into a surprising, radiant kindness, will move you to tears. (Mail on Sunday)

The portrait of Harriet's sad, kind marriage is superb; and Harriet herself is the best Brookner heroine since Edith of Hotel du Lac. (New Statesman)

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)
