Julian Barnes: Elizabeth Finch

View descriptionShare

Booker Prize-winning British author Julian Barnes returns to Sydney Writers’ Festival to introduce his latest novel, Elizabeth Finch. Charting the story of a remarkable teacher through the recollections of a former student, the book has been hailed as a loving tribute to philosophy, a careful evaluation of history and an invitation to think for ourselves. Julian appeared live via video at the 2022 Festival, in conversation with host of ABC Radio National’s The Book Show Claire Nichols, to discuss how questions of love, friendship and biography are woven through the story and his broader body of work, including Flaubert’s Parrot and The Sense of an Ending.
