The Sense of an Ending

The Sense of an Ending (2011)
By Julian Barnes


In The Sense of an Ending, Barnes tells a tragic story about childhood friendship, suicide, and the imperfections of memory. As schoolboys, Tony Webster and Adrian Finn's friendship is strained by a female relationship and later severed by suicide. When Tony receives an unexpected bequest in his early sixties, he is driven to seek out the truth about the past and reassess long-held assumptions.

Fun Fact: Barnes was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 1984, 1998, and 2005.
