It is April 2020, and in this time of confiment we each look for things to do. To keep myself content, in uncertain times, I paint, give yoga classes, listen to music, dance around the living room and now I read. I thought I would read aloud and share. It is not perfect, some words don't always come out correclty, I just let it flow, take it or leave it.
Hotel du Lac
by Anita Brookner
Edith Hope, 'a writer of romantic fiction under a more trusting name', has fed in disgrace to a genteel, out of season Swiss hotel to recover from an act of uncharacteristic recklessness. She plans to use her time in excile to finish her latest novel but her fellow guests prove to be an iirresistible distraction...
Hotel du Lac won the 1984 Booker Prize.
