One of our most treasured storytellers Julian Barnes gives us a reading from the forthcoming The Only Story. His novel The Sense of an Ending won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2011 and was made in to a film staring Jim Broadbent in 2017. His last novel The Noise of Time was a Sunday Times bestseller and his new novel, following nineteen year old Paul, is published in February 2018.

The Only Story is a deeply moving novel by one of fiction’s greatest mappers of the human heart.
