Summary
When middle-aged Tony receives a letter from a solicitor leaving him a diary, it dredges up memories of his high school friendship with the brilliant Adrian Finn and their later college years when both dated a woman named Veronica.
Critique
The errors of memory, the ease of self-deception, and the rewriting of our past are all topics that Barnes ruminates on in this slim volume. Beautifully written with strong characterizations. Winner of the 2011 Booker Prize.
