Julian Barnes is a novelist who writes book-length meditations on modern life.
That’s not what he does when he writes short stories. When he writes short stories, he’s writing about ordinary life.
These stories aren’t about life, they’re about living. Falling in love. Falling out of love. Fucking up big time. Searching for meaning. Dealing with meaninglessness.
There are no answers in this book, only questions. Questions about living modern life. Here. Now.
