Editorial Reviews

"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
