Ho­tel Du Lac

Anita Brookner

Grazia (UK) - - Play List -

(£ 8.99, PEN­GUIN) A ro­mance nov­el­ist is stay­ing in a ho­tel on the shores of Lake Geneva, tak­ing stock af­ter a se­cret af­fair has ended. Ob­serv­ing the other guests with wry hu­mour and an in­spir­ingly in­de­pen­dent out­look, she re­alises – and comes to em­brace – who she re­ally is, de­spite a bro­ken heart. Writ­ten in 1984 but still fresh, funny and per­cep­tive.
