Sense of an Ending/Barnes, Julian/Hardb/0224094157/S004-D
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2011.
Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life.
Now Tony is in middle age. HeÆs had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. HeÆs certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyerÆs 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 worldÆs most distinguished writers.
