Another briiiant Brookner

I never get tired of reading Anita Brookner. I have come to love her gentle but incisive writing style. I thought I had read all she had written but I 'm finding works on Audible which I have never seen in book shops

A "celebration" of passivity and death

As always, Eleanor Bron is a superb reader. The book, though, which is about characters of an astounding lack of vitality, itself lacks any narrative drive. The least interesting Anita Brookner I've read or listened to.
