Read in December, 2009

Loneliness is never easy to portray in a book. It is very easy to say:She felt lonely, or he was alone.
The only true way to see it through a page is by reading Anita Brookner, the master of loneliness. She shows, she makes the reader feel it deep inside. The lifestyle of the lonely is one that resides very deep in our imagination. Something we never want to experience.

These days people will tap their cellphone the minute they feel it. If there isn't someone on the other side to pick up even for a moment, the feeling of dread es too big.

Anita Brookner is capable of drawing what loneliness looks like and when we read her we look it in the eye.
