Read full description of the books:
As I continue to read Anita Brookner's books, I find increased admiration and awe for her skill and precision in her writing. Her language use is elegant and the depth of her character development is succinct and dramatic.
"Incedents in the Rue Laugier" is an absorbing study of a group of people, especially Maud Gonthier and Edward Harrison. Initially as I viewed their activities, language and comportment, I had the impression that I was reading about the Victorian era. However, it became evident that it was then in the 1970's. Much stress was placed on propriety,- being involved with the right people and especially appearances. These strictures placed upon the main characters in this novel are the essence of the psychological drama which was a constant thread throughout. The major theme for Edward and Maud and others was one of longing, epecially to belong, to love and be loved and to be viewed equitably by others. At the same time, it seemed important for them "never to let their guards down".
One could not consider this an uplifting piece, yet I was captivated immediately by Brookner's style and her ability to paint such vivid pictures with her writing.
