Hotel du Lac

by Anita Brookner

Publishers Weekly The winner of the 1984 Booker Prize, this novel tells the story of Edith Hope, 40, unmarried and distraught over a failed love, who is persuaded by friends to go to the quiet, respectable Hotel du Lac in Switzerland. A writer of romantic fiction, Hope becomes enmeshed in the lives of the other guests. Noting that the delivery was perhaps more important than specific events, PW called Brookner ``insidiously observant, so soft of voice the reader must listen closely for the wry wit and sly humor. She is poignantly moving.'' (March) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
