About the Author

Peta Mayer holds a PhD in English Literature from the University of Melbourne.


Reviews 'Anita Brookner deserves this detailed, sophisticated, brilliant reading that appreciates Brookner's peculiar genius and uncovers the ways in which she "does indeed write a different kind of novel." Given the intertextual, allusive nature of Brookner's work and her extraordinary expertise on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European art and literature, Dr Mayer's "misreading" of Brookner's "performative romanticism" is entirely appropriate.'
Ann Holbrook, Professor of English at Saint Anselm College
'By tracing the ways in which Brookner's intellectual achievements as an art historian informed her fiction, Mayer celebrates the subversive potential of Brookner's performative Romanticism, and offers an important reevaluation of this author's too long underrated body of work.'Kathryn Pallant, Contemporary Women's Writing
