Maud Gonthier yearns for an escape from the cocoon of the bourgeois modesty. The splendid, caddish David Tyler appears to offer one. In this stylish, deeply knowing novel by the author of Hotel du Lac, Maud's seduction creates a chemistry of longing, sensuality, and betrayal - with a surprising climax.

From a few words scribbled in a notebook and the scant contents of an old suitcase, a young woman half reconstructs, half invents her parents' youth. Not since Look at Me has Brookner captured so vividly the wistful yet courageous despair of ordinary lives half-lived.
