The very best Anita Brookner!

I have read the other review of this book and could not disagree with it more! Although you are obviously only seeing the protagonists' lives on a superficial level, I found that I thought afterwards about them and where they were heading... Anna Massey reads superbly and she bought the rights to the book and played the 'heroine' in the TV play so perhaps I'm partly swayed by that because the characters were perfectly cast.

I've also read almost all Anita Brookner's books and for me this is the best.

Just right

Anna Massey captures Anita Brookner's elegant prose precisely. As ever with Brookner, the story is deceptively slight but delivers delightful insights.
