Editorial Reviews

Review

“An intricate and dazzling novel.” —The New York Times
 
“Brilliant and quietly devastating.” —Newsweek
 
A virtuoso performance ... put on with dazzling daring and aplomb.” —The New York Review of Books
 
“A perfect novel. I couldn’t put it down.” —Ann Beattie
 
“The novel rests firmly on the narrative sophistication and flawless control of tone ... of a most impressive novelist.” —Julian Barnes

Amazon.com Review

The novel's narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocrat employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens' own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
