Julian Barnes: A Life in Writing

In conversation with Suzie Feay

Sunday 12 June, 6:30-7:30pm

Baillie Gifford Big Tent


Booker Prize Winner Julian Barnes joins us as he looks to the past and finds poignancy in the present with his latest novel Elizabeth Finch, which is nothing short of a masterpiece.

One of the finest writers of our time shares why Elizabeth Finch is more than a novel: it is a loving tribute to philosophy, a careful evaluation of history and an irresistible invitation to think for ourselves, to gently reflect on our own theories and assumptions.

Julian Barnes is the author of thirteen novels, including The Sense of an Ending, which won the 2011 Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

‘There is no more intelligent writer on the literary scene.’ Sunday Times

Please note: Julian Barnes will not be signing copies after the event but pre-signed copies of Elizabeth Finch should be available on site from Waterstones.
