Review

#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE
LONGLISTED FOR THE IMPAC DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD
A New York Times Notable Book


“Exquisitely concise, The Sense of an Ending...offers a merciless portrait of late-twentieth-century males.... This novel lingers.” The Globe and Mail
 
 “Barnes builds a powerful atmosphere of shame and silence.... As ever, Barnes excels at colouring everyday reality with his narrator’s unique subjectivity, without sacrificing any of its vivid precision.... Novel, fertile and memorable.” The Guardian
 
 
“A dexterously crafted narrative of unlooked-for consequences.” The Sunday Times

"A brief but potent work about memory, class, sex and the way we imperfectly bear witness to our own lives.... Each of Barnes's meticulously written sentences bears lingering over, and the novella's impact has a visceral power." Winnipeg Free Press
 
"Julian Barnes may well have written his best novel--he has certainly told a wonderful story that is all too human and all so real." The Irish Times
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
