Sinopsis: A young woman gives up a promising singing career for the sake of a brilliant match. When her husband dies tragically young, she is forced into new relationships which radically change her views. Brookner has written several novels including "Hotel du Lac" which received the 1984 Booker Prize.
One of Brookner's best novels (Penelope Lively, The Observer)
Utterly absorbing . . . so great is Brookner's skill as a writer that you will find it difficult not to devour this brilliant novel at one long sitting. (Daily Mail)
A subtle and thorough exploration of the relationship between nostalgia and old age . . . Brooker [is] one of the bravest novelists around. (Jonathan Coe, Guardian)
Compression, economy and the ability to conjure up an entire personality with a few adroitly chosen words. Brief Lives is a perfect demonstration of these gifts. (Penelope Lively, Evening Standard)
