Anita Brookner        UK        1928-2016

 

British art historian

and author of lean, elegiac

and stylistically polished novels

who was once labeled

the “mistress of gloom”

for her depiction of bleak

and disappointed lives

 

(...)

 

The daughter of Jewish

immigrants from Poland,

Ms. Bruckner grew up

surrounded

by what she once called

“transplanted

and fragile people,

an unhappy brood.”

 

That sense

of an unfulfilled world

carried over

into a career as novelist

that started in her 50s

and secured

a Booker Prize

for her fourth novel,

“Hotel du Lac,”

published in 1984.
