Undue Influence is the nineteenth novel by Anita Brookner, the Booker Prize winning author of Hotel du Lac.

'All of Brookner's novels are great, but this is one of the best . . . Brookner, though acclaimed, deserves more excitement, more rapture from us. Hotel du Lac and the Booker Prize were a long time ago, and it's not her fault if she has bloomed equally brightly every year without fail. I think we're taking her for granted if we don't jump up and celebrate this book right now' - Julie Myerson, Independent on Sunday
'Her technique as a novelist is so sure and so quietly commanding' - Hilary Mantel, Guardian.
'She is one of the great writers of contemporary fiction' - Literary Review.
