What: A Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

When: 21 February, 19:30 – RSVP on Meetup (optional ;))

Where: Restaurant Werdguet

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.

Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction (Now a major film starring Jim Broadbent and Charlotte Rampling)
