Summary, etc.:
Tony Webster has always made the very reasonable assumption that he could trust his memories, but when he's forced to revisit his past, everything he believes about himself and his life is challenged. The fact is that Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, never gave much thought to his past at all until his closest childhood friends' return with a vengeance -- one of them from the grave and another maddeningly present. Tony thought he'd left all this uncertainly behind as he built a life for himself. Tony has created a very ordinary life for himself that includes the usual trappings of marriage, family, and career. But his marriage has become an amicable divorce, and his career has turned into a comfortable retirement. Presented with a mysterious legacy that obliges him to reconsider a variety of things he thought he'd understood all along, Tony may have to revise his estimation of his own nature and his place in the world. The Sense of an Ending is so compelling that it begs to be read in a single sitting. With stunning psychological and emotional depth and sophistication, it is a brilliant work and winner of the Man Booker Prize, one of the world's most prestigious literary honors. BESTSELLER.
