The Sense of an Ending, Paperback / softback Book

The Sense of an Ending Paperback / softback


***Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction***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. In 2017 it was made into a critically acclaimed film starring Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling.
