Undue Influence is the nineteenth novel by Anita Brookner, the Booker Prize winning author of Hotel du Lac.
Enigmatic Claire is 30 and lives alone. When she meets Martin Gibson, a faded scholar, she becomes inordinately interested.

'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.
