    PDF/EPUB Anita Brookner ê The Next Big Thing eBook Ö The Next Kindle - ê next mobile, thing mobile, The Next epub, The Next Big Thing ePUBWho really wants to read Anita Brookner's repellently accurate novels about the intricacies of loneliness? I'm sure this isn't a uestion that troubles the Booker Prize winning author who's managed to publish a book a year since 1981 But a critic confronting her 21st novel has to wonder if readers want to subject themselves to Brookner's searing insight Indeed Making Things Better is a sort of literary toothache an all absorbing pain that brings thoughts into unwelcome clarityAt 73 Julius Hertz is a survivor He escaped the Nazis as a child but as an adult he endured rather than fled his claustrophobic family a decision or lack of decision that essentially cost him his life Now he's finally outlived all the needy people who consumed him His parents whom he cared for even as they destroyed his marriage are dead; his mentally ill brother who stole

    PDF/EPUB Anita Brookner ê The Next Big Thing eBook Ö The Next Kindle - ê next mobile, thing mobile, The Next epub, The Next Big Thing ePUBThis is typical Brookner in another one of my reviews Leaving Home I wrote So check there's a uiet unassuming girl and her reserved widowed mother Check there's a small but steady cash flow so the above don't need to work Check the location is in both London and Paris Check girl acts like a doormat Yup it's Brookner So change it to an older man vs girl and the set up is the same An older lonely man who's facing retirement and has no hobbies family friends or even interests The usual ERE is here Exercise long walks Reading Eating with of course many cups of tea The title comes from the man always making things better for his parents brother etc and being the ultimate doormat For example he visits his brother in a home every weekend saving his parents from having to do it One thing I didn't understand was the arrangement between Hertz's family with their benefactor when they left Germany pre WWII The benefactor gave them a flat and the husband a job but was there no other money?
