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.

Review quote

'A masterpiece.' -- The Daily Telegraph 'Mesmerising ... the concluding scenes grip like a thriller - a whodunit of memory and morality.' -- The Independent 'A very fine book, skilfully plotted, boldly conceived ... Barnes has achieved ... something of universal importance.' -- The Observer 'A precise, poignant portrait of the costs and benefits of time passing, of friendship, of love. A small masterpiece.' -- The Times 'A wonderful story that is all too human and all so real.' -- The Irish Times
