    Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2011. 'I don't believe in God, but I miss Him.' Julian Barnes' new book is, among many things, a family memoir, an exchange with his brother (a philosopher), a meditation on mortality and the fear of death, a celebration of art, an argument with and about God, and a homage to the French writer Jules Renard. Though he warns us that 'this is not my autobiography', the result is a tour of the mind of one of our most brilliant writers. When Angela Carter reviewed Barnes' first novel, Metroland, she praised the mature way he wrote about death. Now, nearly thirty years later, he returns to the subject in a wise , funny and constantly surprising book, which defies category and classification - except as Barnesian.

    O avtorju

    -Julian Barnes-

    Angleški pisatelj in esejist Julian Barnes (1946) se je slovenskim bralcem priljubil z intelektualnimi romani o junakih, ki so obsedeni s preteklostjo.

    Poleg priljubljenih del, ki so prevedena tudi v slovenščino: Flaubertova papiga, Prerekanja, Ljubezen etc., Arthur in George, Zgodovina sveta v desetih poglavjih in pol ter Hrumenje časa, je v začetku pisateljske kariere pod psevdonimom Dan Kavanagh objavil 4 trilerje.

    Za kratki roman Smisel konca je leta 2011 prejel Bookerjevo nagrado, ki je le ena od številnih nagrad. Priznani avtor je tudi uveljavljen prevajalec iz francoščine in esejist.

    Svojo zadnjo knjigo esejev je posvetil pokojni ženi. Sicer Barnes svojo zasebnost skrbno čuva, zato je znano le, da živi v Londonu.
