Arthur and George by Julian Barnes

Book Awards

  • Shortlisted for IMPAC Dublin Literary Award 2007.
  • Shortlisted for British Book Awards: Best Read of the Year 2006.

Book Description

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize Arthur and George grow up worlds apart in late nineteenth-century Britain: Arthur in shabby-genteel Edinburgh, George in the vicarage of a small Staffordshire village. Arthur is to become one of the most famous men of his age, while George remains in hard-working obscurity. But as the new century begins, they are brought together by a sequence of events that made sensational headlines at the time as The Great Wyrley Outrages. This is a novel about low crime and high spirituality, guilt and innocence, identity, nationality and race. Most of all it is a profound and moving meditation on the fateful differences between what we believe, what we know and what we can prove.

Death by Julian Barnes Death, Paperback (June 2017)

When it comes to death, is there ever a best case scenario? In this book, the author confronts our unending obsession with the end. He also reflects on what it means to miss God, whether death can be good for our careers and why we eventually turn into our parents.

Noise of Time by Julian Barnes Noise of Time, Paperback (January 2017)

In May 1937, a man in his early thirties waits by the lift of a Leningrad apartment block. He waits all through the night, expecting to be taken away to the Big House. Any celebrity he has known in the previous decade is no use to him now. And few who are taken to the Big House ever return.

Metroland by Julian Barnes Metroland, Paperback (October 2016)

Christopher and Toni found in each other the perfect companion for that universal adolescent pastime: smirking at the world as you find it. Longing for real life to begin, Christopher makes for Paris in time for les evenements of 1968, only to miss it all in a haze of sex, French theatre and first love.
