I’m pleased to say that I shall be joining in as best I can (my current reading commitments are getting very behind!) with HeavenAli’s Brookner in July Reading Event – read her post here.


I confess to having not read Anita Brookner since “Hotel du Lac” won the Booker Prize (yes, that long ago!) But as I’m finding that my view of books does change over the years, I plan to revisit this volume to see how I respond to it nearly 30 years later! I do hope lots of you will join in, and as Ali points out, Brookner’s books do turn up in UK charity shops regularly – that’s where my copy came from! – so there is no excuse not to read her! Happy July reading!
