"Each new Brookner novel…guarantees the pleasures of a mature intelligence, felicitous language, quirky humor, intensely believable characters, bitter-sweet karma and shapely narrative….A brilliantly executed novel."
– Phillip Lopate,
The New York Times Book Review"Anita Brookner never ceases to surprise. In this sly and delectable fiction…an artist has extended her range."-Boston Globe
"Confirms Anita Brookner’s reputation as a novelist….There is a solemn felicity, a classical sense of fairness inherent in Lewis Percy. This, with the author’s sane humor, told in her elegant, lucid prose, combines to make something truly remarkable."
– San Francisco Chronicle
