Hotel Du Lac

Anita Brookner, Author Plume Books $6.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-525-48204-8
The winner of the 1984 Booker Prize, this novel tells the story of Edith Hope, 40, unmarried and distraught over a failed love, who is persuaded by friends to go to the quiet, respectable Hotel du Lac in Switzerland. A writer of romantic fiction, Hope becomes enmeshed in the lives of the other guests. Noting that the delivery was perhaps more important than specific events, PW called Brookner ""insidiously observant, so soft of voice the reader must listen closely for the wry wit and sly humor. She is poignantly moving.'' (March)
