This is one of the defining novels of English writer Julian Barnes.

An unabridged recording of one of the most popular literary works of the past two decades by an author who consistently wears his erudition lightly. Underpins Naxos AudioBooks commitment to literary novels in unabridged form. Read by Alex Jennings whose work on audiobook, in the theatre, and on TV and film demonstrates intelligent performance at its best.
