Reviews

  • 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
