Julian Barnes has long been recognised as one of Britain's most remarkable writers. In this Booker short-listed novel, he he enables the reader to see the inner lives of these two very different and intriguing men with stunning clarity. We can almost inhabit their minds as they face their tribulations, whether in the dock hearing a verdict of guilty, or trying to live an honourable life while desperately in love with another woman. These events of a hundred years ago constantly set off contemporary echoes: this is a novel about low crime and high spirituality, guilt and innocence and nationality identity. Barnes has written with elegance and wit, so that profound wisdom about the human condition is delivered as a novel that sometimes reads like a thriller. Absorbing, readable and often touching.Learn more here and RSVP
