Description - Metroland by Julian Barnes

'I cannot remember when I enjoyed a first novel more' Daily Telegraph

From the winner of the 2011 Man Booker Prize for Fiction comes a magnificent portrait of youth and growing up.Christopher and Toni found in each other the perfect companion for that universal adolescent pastime- smirking at the world as you find it. In between training as flaneurs and the grind of school they cast a cynical eye over their various dislikes- parents with their lives of spotless emptiness, Third Division (North) football teams, God, commuters and girls, and the inhabitants of Metroland, the strip of suburban dormitory Christopher calls home.Longing for real life to begin, we follow Christopher to Paris in time for les evenements of 1968, only to miss it all in a haze of sex, French theatre and first love, leading him, to Toni's disappointment, back to Metroland.
