About this book
Paperback edition of the 2011 Man Booker Prize winner, and "Sunday Times" bestseller. Tony Webster looks back on his youth and his friendship with the brilliant but serious Adrian. But just how fallible is his memory of that time? A powerful story of a man coming to terms with his mutable past, from the author of "Arthur & George, Metroland" and "Flaubert's Parrot". 'A masterpiece... I would urge you to read and re-read "The Sense Of An Ending"' "Daily Telegraph"
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. May be Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life.
