內容簡介



來自過去的信件,告訴你從未了解的真相。

  後來,我才驚覺:
  年輕的時候,我們想像自己美妙的未來;
  年老的時候,我們編織別人不存在的過去。

  一切都很美好。
  四十年前,他們頌讚青春,文學,哲學,友誼,愛情;
  當然也有一些荒唐,嫉妒,幼稚的衝突與胡鬧。

  四十年後,當你的人生走過了平靜無波的大半日子,
  當你即將抵達人生的終點,
  突然發現某一段記憶並非事實的全貌,
  那麼,當時被剝奪和隱瞞的,究竟是多麼不可告人的真相……

  高中時代的東尼與三位死黨日日高談闊論著人生應有的樣貌。艾卓安是四人當中最聰明的一位,他早慧的心靈讓他自以為看透人生的本質,因而成為其他三人追隨的對象。

  大學畢業前夕,艾卓安與東尼的初戀女友薇若妮卡交往,但就在他們正式交往後沒多久,卻傳來艾卓安自殺的消息,自殺的真正原因無人知曉。

  四十年過去,東尼早已與當年的老同學失去連絡,過著平靜的日子。某一天,他接到遺囑執行人的來信,表示初戀女友薇若妮卡的母親不久前過逝,留給他五百英磅及一本艾卓安的日記。

  過往的一切突然再度出現在他的腦中,他不得不重新面對過去,審視回憶,卻發覺自己向來以為的記憶不是真的,到底,真相是……?

Now a major directed by Ritesh Batra, starring Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey), Emily Mortimer, Charlotte Rampling, Jim Broadbent, and Edward Holcroft

A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single setting, The Sense of an Ending has the psychological and emotional depth and sophistication of Henry James at his best, and is a stunning achievement in Julian Barnes's oeuvre.
 
This intense novel follows Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, as he contends with a past he never thought much about—until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance: one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony thought he left this all behind as he built a life for himself, and his career has provided him with a secure retirement and an amicable relationship with his ex-wife and daughter, who now has a family of her own. But when he is presented with a mysterious legacy, he is forced to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world.
