Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth grade 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. Hes had a career and a single marriage followed by a calm divorce. Hes certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyers letter is about to prove. The Sense of an Ending is the story of one man coming to terms with the mutable past. Laced with trademark precision, dexterity, and insight, it is the work of one of the worlds most distinguished writers.
