Brookner explores the complications that arise when one solitary man comes up against a woman who seems determined to invade his solitude. George Bland is an aging bachelor whose existence has been virtually a mirror image of his name--up until now. For into George's life walks Katy Gibb, young, abrasively self-assured, who incites in George the most alarming feelings.
Anita Brookner is the winner of the prestigious 1984 Booker Prize for Hotel du Lac. She is the author of many highly praised novels including Fraud, Dolly and Brief Lives. Her newest novel, Incidents in the Rue Laugier, will be published this winter by Random House of Canada.
