Publisher Description

'The future is not always a whole new ball game. There tends to be unfinished business. One trails all sorts of things around with one, things that simply won't be got rid of.' Destined to be a haunter of libraries, Lewis's cautious progress through life reveals to him only his own shortcomings. Estranged from his wife and daughter, he searches for an alternative. This novel presents the life and aspirations of one man who remains out of step with his times.

Author Biography

Anita Brookner was born in south London in 1928, the daughter of a Polish immigrant family. She trained as an art historian, and worked at the Courtauld Institute of Art until her retirement in 1988. She published her first novel, A Start in Life, in 1981 and her twenty-fourth, Strangers, in 2009. Hotel du Lac won the 1984 Booker Prize. As well as fiction, Anita Brookner has published a number of volumes of art criticism.

Review

Elegant, nuanced; at times almost Jamesian in its convolution and subtlety. L.A. Times 'A searching study of innocence, and the limitations of innocence.' London Review of Books How can anything be so funny and so sad both at once? Every sentence is an object lesson in compression and wit. -- Tessa Hadley on 'A Start in Life' Guardian Summer Reads, 2015
