**WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE**

'A masterpiece... I would urge you to read - and re-read ' Daily Telegraph

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.

'Mesmerising' Independent

'A very fine book... Barnes has achieved... something of universal importance' Observer
