The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

This program is sold out

Booker Prize winner The Sense of an Ending follows a middle-aged man as he contends with a past he has never much thought about – until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance, one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony Webster thought he'd left all this behind as he built a life for himself, and by now his marriage, family and career have fallen into an amicable divorce and retirement. But he is then presented with a mysterious legacy that obliges him to reconsider a variety of things he thought he'd understood all along, and to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world. Come discuss this work with fellow book lovers. As a reminder, the author will not be present.
