After discussing critical assessments of Brookner, and attempts to relate her to various classics and contemporaries, Dr. Skinner skillfully combines insights from recent narrative theory with detailed analyses of nine novels.

Moving from the first novels, and their close links with French literary models, he goes on to trace the increased sophistication of Hotel du Lac and the technical innovations of its successors. Drawing, finally, on the novelists substantial interviews, Dr. Skinner confronts inevitable speculation on the autobiographical element in Brookners fiction with the broader but equally pertinent issue of fiction in Brookners (or indeed any writers) autobiography.
