The Fiction of Anita Brookner is the first full-length study of this controversial contemporary writer. After discussing critical assessments of Brookner, and attempts to relate her to various classics and contemporaries, Dr Skinner skilfully combines insights from recent narrative theory with close analyses of nine novels. Moving from the first novels, and their close relations to French literary models, he goes on to trace the increased sophistication of Hotel du Lac and the technical innovations of its successors.
