I have just read Falling Slowly which I loved. Any one else read her? Any recommendations for her books or similar writer?
I haven't read any Brookner for 20+ years but at the time I also liked Barbara Pym.
Love her and have read most of them. Her best is Hotel du lac, IMO.
I loved Hotel du Lac but it all got a bit samey after that.
I found Bernice Rubens a bit similar.
Thanks, listening to hotel du Lac on audible at the moment. I love her writing, and Anna Massey really gets the tone spot on. Will try Bernice Rubens and Barbara Pym.
I love Anita Brooker, my only problem is her titles don't tend to stick in my head.... I loved Undue Influence; Falling Slowly & The Rules of Engagement do check out the books published by Persephone; particularly Dorothy Whipple
Yes, her stuff is great, although I haven't read it for a long time. Always a sense of quiet longing about her books.Barbara Pym is a recentish discovery for me and is terrific.
