I've always loved Anita Brookner's writing for its simple elegance.
I've read the following books by her and plan to read others:
Hotel du Lac
Altered States

Wiki says:
====================================================
"Anita Brookner ... (born 1928) is an English novelist and art historian. ...

"Brookner published her first novel, A Start In Life, in 1981 at the age of 53. Since then she has published a novel approximately every year. Her fourth book, Hotel Du Lac, published in 1984, won the Booker Prize.

"Brookner is highly regarded as a stylist. Her fiction, which has been heavily influenced by her own life experiences, explores themes of isolation, emotional loss and difficulties associated with fitting into English society. Her novels typically depict intellectual, middle-class women, who suffer isolation, emotional loss and disappointments in love. Many of Brookner's characters are the children of European immigrants who experience difficulties with fitting into English life."
