[Published 2012 by Jonathan Cape]


For book lovers, and especially those who are fans of Julian Barnes, this charming little pamphlet is his passion put into words.


Short enough to be an essay on the topic, ‘A Life with Books’ is Barnes’s personal journey and exploration of his love of books. Bound into a miniature book, it is quick enough to read in under an hour. During this reprieve, readers will be moved and amused as we can all relate to his maturation, changes, and epiphanies that come with a lifetime of reading.


‘A Life with Books’ is a dedication to these carefully-written, bound, and sold items that enrich so many lives – they embolden us, educate us, temper us. Yet it is also a very personal glimpse into the author’s feelings; feelings that have developed throughout a lifetime of reading and writing.
