About this book
A new short novel from the acclaimed author. His last novel, "Arthur & George", sold over 400,000 copies across all editions, and his backlist has been recently reissued in a unique style. Barnes' latest short story collection, "Pulse", is also out in paperback this month.
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.
