by Anita Brookner (Author)


Dorothea May's tranquility is shattered by Kitty Levinson's announcement of her granddaughter's forthcoming marriage. As the wedding approaches, the scene is set for a highly charged conflict of generations, in which the claims of the young are in stark and selfish contrast to the disabling propriety of the old. "Visitors" is a vivid exploration of familial responsibilities and the expectations that perpetually threaten to overwhelm them.
