By Anita Brookner
In Falling Slowly, Anita Brookner brilliantly inspires the origins, nature, and results of human isolation. As heart age settles upon the Sharpe sisters, remorse over possibilities now not taken casts a shadow over their contented lifestyles. Beatrice, a skilled if uninspired pianist, offers up appearing, a call encouraged through stiffening joints and the unexpected cognizance that her artwork hasn't ever introduced her anyone to like. Miriam, often calm and lucid, slides headlong into an affair with an enthralling, handsome--and very married--man. And as every one lady awakens to the urgency of her loneliness, disorder threatens to sever them either from the single happiness they've got grown to expect: one another. Painfully clever, the Sharpe sisters include the conflicting yearnings Jane Austen delineated in Sense and Sensibility.
