Description:

1st edition/1st printing of author's 1st novel. A quiet literature teacher's debut half her years ago took a very different turn than she expected - her expectations were corrupted by promises of a happy ending. Near fine+ book (remainder mark lower page edges, a touch of shelf bumping to lower spine end) in a near fine DJ (spine slightly sunned, couple of tiny closed edge tears, very minor soiling to white back panel) .

About this title:

Synopsis: Although Ruth Weiss at forty is the picture of a scholarly professor of English, at twenty she briefly tasted the romantic life, much like her beloved heroines, Anna Karenina and Madame Bovary

From the Back Cover: "Precise and haunting...Brookner is a master at creating miniaturist portraits of attenuated lives"

-- The New York Times

"An almost flawless novel." -- People

"Sly, detached humor has caused Brookner to be compared to Barbara Pym, but her vision is darker and more complex .... Brookner's ambitions exceed those of Pym's genteel novels of manners and place her outside the genre, to which her writing, with its delicate shadings of character, otherwise seem suited."-- The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Anita Brookner is a stunning writer." -- Edna O'Brien

"Deft, lively and quite touching." -- Mary Gordon
