Herz is seventv-three and facing the difficult question: what
is he going to do with the rest of his life? How is it all
going to end:
He could propose marriage to an old friend he hasn't seen
for thirty years; he could travel; he could make a trip to Paris
to see a favourite painting: he could sell his flat, move, start
afresh. He must do something with the time left but what?
In her cleverest, funniest novel to date, Anita Brookner
brilliantly captures all the tremulous anxieties of old age
the misunderstanding of an increasingly modern, alien world,
the bungled conversations with passers-by, the letters written,
torn up and rewritten and the bizarre and magnificent self-
knowledge that only age and experience bring.
