Product Synopsis

In this 2011 Man Booker Prize-winning novel Tony Webster and his clique first meet Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour and wit. Maybe Adrian is a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swear to stay friends for life. Now Tony is in middle age. He's had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He's certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer's letter is about to prove. The Sense of an Ending is the story of one man coming to terms with the mutable past. Laced with trademark precision, dexterity and insight, it is the work of one of the world's most distinguished writers.

Customer Reviews

With English as my second language I always enjoy reading an author who has clear ans supple command of the language. Barnes has a very fine story to tell, one that has been highly relevant to me in my present endeavor of summing up my own life (I'm in the seventies). Yours Jens Bruun
