Synopsis

Synopsis

Brookner explores the complications that arise when one solitary man comes up against a woman who seems determined to invade his solitude. George Bland is an aging bachelor whose existence has been virtually a mirror image of his name--up until now. For into George's life walks Katy Gibb, young, abrasively self-assured, who incites in George the most alarming feelings.

Praise

Praise

"Devastating...Her tending to language, as we've come to expect, is loving, cutting and exact." --The Montreal Gazette

"A narrative of subtleties and nuances, reminiscent of the narratives of the later Henry James." --The Toronto Star

"Elegant...Her poetry of forlornness is stronger and stranger than ever. Brightness falls from the air everywhere in this novel." --Hermione Lee, The New Yorker
