The 2011 Man Booker Prize-winning novel by an acclaimed writer at the height of his powers: an exquisite, quietly suspenseful story about a man whose comfortably settled life is upended by a mysterious legacy.

The Sense of an Ending follows Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, as he contends with a past he never thought much about--until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance: one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony thought he left this all behind as he built a life for himself, and his career has provided him with a secure retirement and an amicable relationship with his ex-wife and daughter, who now has a family of her own. But when Tony is presented with a mysterious legacy, he is forced to reconsider a variety of things he thought he understood all along, and he must revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world. A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single setting, The Sense of an Ending has the psychological and emotional depth and sophistication of Henry James at his best, and is a stunning new chapter in Julian Barnes's oeuvre.
