The latest novel by the Booker Prize-winning author of Hotel du Lac chronicles an unlikely friendship between two very different women thrust together by their husbands' business partnership--and by a guilty secret. "Anita Brookner works a spell on the reader; being under it is both an education and a delight."--The Washington Post Book World.
"Compelling...Brookner's vision of human behavior is scrupulously honest, without ever being cruel... a gem of revelation."
— Hilma Wolitzer, Chicago Tribune
"Accomplished...compassionate, meditative and intelligent. Empathy informs all of Anita Brookner's novels, [and] Brief Lives is yet another instance of her large and knowing heart."
— The New York Times Book Review
