After discussing critical assessments of Brookner, and attempts to relate her to various classics and contemporaries, Dr. Skinner skillfully combines insights from recent narrative theory with detailed analyses of nine novels. Moving from the first novels, and their close links with French literary models, he goes on to trace the increased sophistication of Hotel du Lac and the technical innovations of its successors. Drawing, finally, on the novelist's substantial interviews, Dr. Skinner confronts inevitable speculation on the autobiographical element in Brookner's fiction with the broader but equally pertinent issue of fiction in Brookner's (or indeed any writer's) autobiography+-+99391088853242752ocn038549771book19980.73Soule, GeorgeFour British women novelists : Anita Brookner, Margaret Drabble, Iris Murdoch, Barbara Pym : an annotated and critical secondary bibliographyHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcBibliography+-+8050835635724ocn047086029book20000.93Björkblom, IngerThe plane of uncreatedness : a phenomenological study of Anita Brookner's late fictionHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc353ocn053880200book20040.86Williams-Wanquet, EileenArt and life in the novels of Anita Brookner : reading for life, subversive re-writing to liveHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+5384095735251ocn035664146book19960.76Pinger, PetraBeing in but not quite of a world : mentalstilistische Strukturen im Romanwerk Anita Brookners 1981-1991History231ocn038292055book19970.88Ramsey-Kurz, HelgaThe anatomy of friction : frag-würdige "Frauenfreundschaften" in den Romanen von Anita Brookner, Alice Thomas Ellis und Emma TennantCriticism, interpretation, etc171ocn644706676com20070.47Contemporary literary criticismCriticism, interpretation, etcStories, plots, etcCovers authors who are currently active or who died after December 31, 1959.
