Summary

Summary

Winner of the Man Booker Prize

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, rumor, 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 has had a career, a single marriage, and a calm divorce. He certainly has never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove.

“A highly wrought meditation on aging, memory and regret.” The Guardian (London)
“It manages to create genuine suspense as a sort of psychological detective story.” New York Times
“An elegantly composed, quietly devastating tale.” NPR
“Probes the mysteries of how we remember and our impulse to redact, correct—and sometimes entirely erase—our pasts.” Vogue
