ANITA BROOKNER

An unsung literary hero celebrated here in full effect.

Solitary Refinement:

A Journey Through Anita Brookner’s Anthology

In this time of social isolation, we are eager to explore the perils and pleasure of aloneness, a theme that Brookner made her life’s work. Our community will celebrate the unsung author by exploring her work in-depth, beginning with “The Debut” (UK title, A Start in Life). Luminary Lit’s Neil Donahue will lead us in exploring all 25 of Brookner’s novels in chronological order while prompting a collective conversation around relevant themes, her style and her singular place in the literary canon. You can read and follow along as Luminary Lit releases commentary on each book and contribute your own thoughts on the titles as they are released through our google group here.  We are thrilled to be celebrating artists that provide valuable and critical insights into our world as a community!
