Hotel du Lac

Written by Anita Brookner.

Winner of the 1984 Booker prize.

Try this to see for yourself the various comments in printed matter about Hotel du Lac.

Is this the Hotel du Lac that inspired her? But I think this one stands a better chance.

Anita Brookner on BrainyQuote.

Like always, I find a lot of good things to say about this book. However I shall restrict myself to one comment - Brookner has the genius to transform a mundane romance into a reflective gem by using the conversational mode with a masterly touch. I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations in this book.
