Praise

"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
