'You put together two things that have not been put together before. And the world is changed...' Julian Barnes' new book is about ballooning, photography, love and grief; about putting two things, and two people, together, and about tearing them apart. One of the judges who awarded him the 2011 Man Booker Prize described him as 'an unparalleled magus of the heart'. This book confirms that opinion.

The Sense of an Ending The classic Booker Prize-winning novel

Now a major film starring Academy Award nominees Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Charlotte Rampling (45 Years) Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 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 retired. 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.

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA BOOK AWARDS 2020* 'A bravura performance, highly entertaining' Evening Standard The Booker Prize-winning author of The Sense of an Ending takes us on a rich, witty tour of Belle Epoque Paris, via the life story of the pioneering surgeon Samuel Pozzi. In the summer of 1885, three Frenchmen arrived in London for a few days' shopping. One was a Prince, one was a Count, and the third was a commoner, who four years earlier had been the subject of one of John Singer Sargent's greatest portraits. The commoner was Samuel Pozzi, society doctor, pioneer gynaecologist and free-thinker - a scientific man with a famously complicated private life. Pozzi's life played out against the backdrop of the Parisian Belle Epoque. The beautiful age of glamour and pleasure more often showed its ugly side: hysterical, narcissistic, decadent and violent, with more parallels to our own age than we might imagine. **SHORTLISTED FOR THE DUFF COOPER PRIZE 2019**

Elizabeth Finch

Author: Julian Barnes Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/04/2022

We'd like to introduce you to Elizabeth Finch. We invite you to take her course in Culture and Civilisation. She will change the way you see the world. 'The task of the present is to correct our understanding of the past. And that task becomes the more urgent when the past cannot be corrected.' Elizabeth Finch was a teacher, a thinker, an inspiration - always rigorous, always thoughtful. With measured empathy, she guided her students to develop meaningful ideas and to discover their centres of seriousness. As Neil, a former student, unpacks Elizabeth's notebooks, and remembers her uniquely inquisitive mind, her passion for reason resonates through the years. Her ideas unlock the philosophies of the past, and explore key events that show us how to make sense of our lives today. And underpinning them all is the story of J - Julian the Apostate, her historical soulmate and fellow challenger to the institutional and monotheistic thinking that has always threatened to divide us. This is more than a novel. It's a loving tribute to philosophy, a careful evaluation of history, an invitation to think for ourselves. It's a moment to reflect and to gently explore our own theories and assumptions. It is truly a balm for our times. -- This book has been printed with two different colour designs, blue and yellow.

Keeping an Eye Open

Keeping an Eye Open

Author: Julian Barnes Format: Paperback Release Date: 05/11/2020

The updated edition of Julian Barnes' best-loved writing on art, with seven new exquisite illustrated essays 'Flaubert believed that it was impossible to explain one art form in terms of another, and that great paintings required no words of explanation. Braque thought the ideal state would be reached when we said nothing at all in front of a painting. But we are very far from reaching that state. We remain incorrigibly verbal creatures who love to explain things, to form opinions, to argue... It is a rare picture which stuns, or argues, us into silence. And if one does, it is only a short time before we want to explain and understand the very silence into which we have been plunged.' Julian Barnes began writing about art with a chapter on Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa in his 1989 novel A History of the World in 101/2 Chapters. Since then he has written a series of remarkable essays, chiefly about French artists, which trace the story of how art made its way from Romanticism to Realism and into Modernism. Fully illustrated in colour throughout, Keeping an Eye Open contains Barnes' essays on Gericault, Delacroix, Courbet, Manet, Morisot, Fantin-Latour, Cezanne, Degas, Cassatt, Redon, Van Gogh, the legendary critic Huysmans, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Braque, Magritte, Oldenburg, Howard Hodgkin and Lucian Freud. It also offers new perspectives on the fruitful relationship between writers and artists, and on the rivalry among Russian collectors of French art in the late 19th century. 'A typically elegant and absorbing book by one of the greatest contemporary English writers.' Guardian *Books of the Year* 'Gave me a new confidence in how to understand and, more importantly, enjoy wandering around an exhibition.' Mariella Frostrup 'My book of the year.'

Julian Barnes' meisterhafter Roman uber Dmitri SchostakowitschIm Mai 1937 wartet ein Mann jede Nacht neben dem Fahrstuhl seiner Leningrader Wohnung darauf, dass Stalins Schergen kommen und ihn abholen. Der Mann ist der Komponist Schostakowitsch, und er wartet am Lift, um seiner Familie den Anblick seiner Verhaftung zu ersparen. Die Gunst der Mchtigen zu erlangen, hat zwei Seiten: Stalin, der sich pltzlich fr seine Musik zu interessieren scheint, verlsst noch in der Pause die Auffhrung seiner Oper "e;Lady Macbeth von Mzensk"e;. Fortan ist Schostakowitsch ein zum Abschuss freigegebener Mann. Durch Glck entgeht er der Suberung, doch was bedeutet es fr einen Knstler, keine Entscheidung frei treffen zu knnen? In welchem Verhltnis stehen Kunst und Unterdrckung, Diktatur und Kreativitt zueinander, und ist es verwerflich, wenn man sich der Macht beugt, um knstlerisch arbeiten zu knnen?Im neuen Roman von Julian Barnes wird das von Repressionen geprgte Leben von Schostakowitsch in meisterhafter Knappheit dargestellt - ein groartiger Knstlerroman, der die Frage der Integritt stellt und traurige Aktualitt geniet.

Christopher and Toni found in each other the perfect companion for that universal adolescent pastime: smirking at the world as you find it. In between training as flaneurs and the grind of school, they cast a cynical eye over their various dislikes: parents with their lives of spotless emptiness, Third Division (North) football teams, God, commuters and girls, and the inhabitants of Metroland: the strip of suburban dormitory Christopher calls home. Longing for real life to begin, Christopher makes for Paris in time for les evenements of 1968, only to miss it all in a haze of sex, French theatre and first love. And before long he finds himself drawn inevitably back to Metroland and the very life he was trying to escape... This special edition contains unseen archive material including letters from early fans such as Philip Larkin and Dodie Smith, contemporary reviews, a deleted scene from the original manuscript as well as an introduction from the author.
