Description
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.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Narrator Richard Morant portrays protagonist Tony Webster with grace and verve. A British man of a certain age, Tony reflects candidly on his youth and uses recollections of friends and lovers lost to examine his own progress as an individual. Morant's crisp, efficient accent emphasizes Tony's reserve, his natural tendency to keep things orderly and appropriate. While relatively brief, this audiobook is immediately engaging and feels like a complete, albeit concise, examination of a life lived somewhat at arm's length. Tony watches people come and go in his life, loving them without necessarily connecting with them, and the listener can't help but empathize with this likable, circumspect hero as he traces his life's journey.

        Starred review from October 31, 2011
        In Barnes's (Flaubert's Parrot) latest, winner of the 2011 Man-Booker Prize, protagonist Tony Webster has lived an average life with an unremarkable career, a quiet divorce, and a calm middle age. Now in his mid-60s, his retirement is thrown into confusion when he's bequeathed a journal that belonged to his brilliant school-friend, Adrian, who committed suicide 40 years earlier at age 22. Though he thought he understood the events of his youth, he's forced to radically revise what he thought he knew about Adrian, his bitter parting with his mysterious first lover Veronica, and reflect on how he let life pass him by safely and predictably. Barnes's spare and luminous prose splendidly evokes the sense of a life whose meaning (or meaninglessness) is inevitably defined by "the sense of an ending" which only death provides. Despite its focus on the blindness of youth and the passage of time, Barnes's book is entirely unpretentious. From the haunting images of its first pages to the surprising and wrenching finale, the novel carries readers with sensitivity and wisdom through the agony of lost time.
