If only they would just sit down and talkā€¦

But quite often, that’s not what people do. In Julian Barnes's crisp and elegant novella we meet Tony, a self -described nice guy, an everyday man, who is suddenly, revisited by the past though a mysterious inheritance. This spurs Tony to reminisce about his school day friendships and misadventures. In fact, Tony is forever musing on memory, history and truth, but cracks in his narration soon appear and widen. Tony may be rewriting his own history to blend out the parts he doesn’t like. It’s a book that gets under your skin and stays with you for a long time, as you think about the characters and why they didn’t just… A Man Booker Prize Winner.
