Summary Strangers

Read & Download · Strangers Literary master Anita Brookner’s elegant style is manifest on every page of her brilliant new novel Beautifully crafted and emotionally evocative Strangers portrays the magic and depth of real life telling the rich story of an ordinary man whose unexpected longings doubts and fears are universalPaul Sturgis is resigned to his bachelorhood and the uietude of his London flat He occasionally pays obliging visits to his nearest living relative Helena. This book made me so sad It s about loneliness The main figure is probably the most lonely figure in literature He s conscious about being lonely but in the main time dreads interference of other people The two women who cross his path are nearly also as lonely as he is so not a happy novel to read Not that they all must be happy But it has some fatalistic mood hanging over it But that doesn t mean it wasn t a good book certainly very good written
