***Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction*** ***Now a major film starring Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling*** 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. 'A masterpiece' Daily Telegraph 'Mesmerising' Independent 'Wonderful' Irish Times

"A masterpiece... I would urge you to read - and re-read - The Sense of an Ending" * Daily Telegraph * "Mesmerising... the concluding scenes grip like a thriller - a whodunit of memory and morality" * Independent * "A very fine book, skilfully plotted, boldly conceived... Barnes has achieved...something of universal importance" -- Justin Cartwright * Observer * "A precise, poignant portrait of the costs and benefits of time passing, of friendship, of love. A small masterpiece" -- Erica Wagner * The Times * "A wonderful story that is all too human and all so real" * Irish Times *
