Man Booker Prize-winning author Julian Barnes' debut novel.

The adolescent Christopher and his soul mate Toni had sneered at the stifling ennui of Metroland, their cosy patch of suburbia on the Metropolitan line. They had longed for Life to begin - meaning Sex and Freedom - to travel and choose their own clothes.

Then Chris, at thirty, starts to settle comfortably into bourgeois contentment himself. Luckily, Toni is still around to challenge such backsliding.

    " Barnes's attention to detail in this work is extraordinary. Just the sodium light alone is enough for me to fall in love with this book. The narrator's relationships to aesthetics and to other characters in the book allow for significant questions on their effect on our world, questions that resonate even more on re-reading as readers are left to ponder if the dandyism in the beginning is child's play or if this is an elegy to the loss of unmitigated imagination.
