The only story by Julian Barnes


Julian Barnes writes about the human condition  as we live and breathe it.The beauty, humor, power and pain of love is beautifully portrayed in this story. Paul's first love is Susan, an all absorbing, nonjudgmental, totally trusting, self-centered love as only a 19 year old can believe in. Susan is 48 with a past that Paul believes "love" can ease and create anew lives. A novel that reveals our idealistic illusions about love, the fragility of relationships and commitment. A novel that reveals as much by what is written for us to know and the unsaid truths.
