DescriptionTony 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 in middle age. 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. The Sense of an Ending is the story of one man coming to terms with the mutable past. Laced with trademark precision, dexterity and insight, it is the work of one of the world's most distinguished writers.

Reviews for The Sense of an Ending
How our memories change
I did not want to like this book as I have become somewhat cynical about award winners, they never seem to live up to the hype, so with trepidation I sat down and read this in a day. It wasn't perfect and sometimes the language saw me reach for the dictionery, but I loved the sense of how our memories change over time especially when we are forced to retell them to others.
