Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"As its brilliant title punningly hints, NOTHING TO BE FRIGHTENED OF offers an extended meditation on human mortality, but one that is neither clinical nor falsely consoling. Instead, the witty and melancholy author...simply converses with us about our most universal fear....Beautifully done."

Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World, 08/31/2008

Review:

"How can you be frightened of Nothing? On this simple question Barnes has hung an elegant memoir and meditation, a deep seismic tremor of a book that keeps rumbling and grumbling in the mind for weeks thereafter."

Garrison Keillor, New York Times Book Review, 10/03/2008

Book Description: Vintage International, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 209 x 125 mm. Brand New Book. NATIONAL BESTSELLER A NEW YORK TIMES BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR A memoir on mortality as only Julian Barnes can write it, one that touches on faith and science and family as well as a rich array of exemplary figures who over the centuries have confronted the same questions he now poses about the most basic fact of life: its inevitable extinction. If the fear of death is the most rational thing in the world, how does one contend with it? An atheist at twenty and an agnostic at sixty, Barnes looks into the various arguments for, against, and with God, and at his own bloodline, which has become, following his parents death, another realm of mystery. Deadly serious, masterfully playful, and surprisingly hilarious, Nothing to Be Frightened Of is a riveting display of how this supremely gifted writer goes about his business and a highly personal tour of the human condition and what might follow the final diagnosis.
