Review:
" A small gem of clarity and intensity. Her latest, "Leaving Home," promises--and delivers--the savory experience devotees of Brookner have come to crave." -- "The Baltimore Sun"
" Yet another delicious reading experience. Her elegant prose and psychological acuity are fully on display. . . . As a narrator Emma is both clear-eyed and honest--often achingly so."
-- "The Christian Science Monitor"
" Beautiful, piercingly elegant." -- "New York Times Book Review"
" It's hard to pinpoint how Brookner's world differs from the one we know, since the minute we begin reading her fiction, we lose our awareness of the boundaries that separate us from the people whose often circumscribed lives she is so deftly describing. . . . Admirable and refreshing." -- "Bookforum"
