  • The novel is nearly as perfect an instance of its genre as it is reasonable to ask.

    Frank Kermode, Spectator
  • This is vintage Brookner: all exquisite understatement, acute observation and razor-sharp dissection of motive.

    Time Out
  • This small history unfolds slowly, with delicious wit or bitter pathos, and finally with a marvellous, lingering human resonance.

    Sunday Express
  • Compelling . . . some classic Brookner quality stays in the mind; questions hover, polite but uncomfortable, long after the final page.
