Anyone who enjoys reading and discussing books is welcome to join us for The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes. This slim novel, winner of the 2011 Booker Prize, probes the ways in which people tailor their memories to make it possible to live with themselves. The unreliable narrator, Tony, inherits a diary that causes him to revisit a romance from his early 20s, and reflect on his life since then. Full of emotional depth and philosophical ideas, the novel also reads a bit like a detective story as the reader tries to discern what really happened.
