Praise

"Starts like a classic detective story and continues like a metaphysical mystery…fascinating [and] deeply satisfying. Brookner’s most enjoyable novel in many years."– San Francisco Chronicle

"Sophisticated and intelligent…Although Brookner has often been compared to Jane Austen, Henry James is the author she brings most to mind. She is [as] responsive to mystery as she is to the mysterious inner matters of her characters’ minds. Brookner has written a novel of…suffering and of momentary but somehow very large triumph."– Frederick Busch, Chicago Tribune

"Brookner’s usual satiny prose is carefully disciplined, beguilingly smooth…. A study of character [that] skillfully evokes the vicissitudes of friendship."– New York Newsday
