9780099540076: Before She Met Me

"A remarkably original and subtle novel." --Frank Kermode, New York Review of Books
     
Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2011
   Graham Hendrick, an historian, has left his wife Barbara for the vivacious Ann, and is more than pleased with his new life. Until, that is, the day he discovers Ann's celluloid past as a mediocre film actress. Soon Graham is pouncing on old clues, examining her books for inscriptions from past lovers, frequenting cinemas and poring over the bad movies she appeared in. It's not that he blames Anne for having a past before they met, but history has always mattered to him.

From the Inside Flap:

At the start of this fiendishly comic and suspenseful novel, a mild-mannered English academic chuckles as he watches his wife commit adultery. The action takes place before she met him. But lines between film and reality, past and present become terrifyingly blurred in this sad and funny tour de force from the author of Flaubert's Parrot.

About the Author:

JULIAN BARNES is the author of eleven novels, including The Sense of an Ending, Metroland, Flaubert's Parrot, A History of the World in 101/2 Chapters and Arthur & George; three books of short stories, Cross Channel, The Lemon Table and Pulse. His work has been translated into more than thirty languages. In France he is the only writer to have won both the Prix Médicis (for Flaubert's Parrot) and the Prix Femina (for Talking it Over). He was awarded the Austrian State Prize for European Literature in 2004, the David Cohen Prize for Literature and the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 2011. He lives in London.
