"A remarkably original and subtle novel." --Frank Kermode, New York Review of Books
     
Winner of the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2011
   Graham Hendrick, an historian, has left his wife Barbara for the vivacious Ann, and is more than pleased with his new life. Until, that is, the day he discovers Ann's celluloid past as a mediocre film actress. Soon Graham is pouncing on old clues, examining her books for inscriptions from past lovers, frequenting cinemas and poring over the bad movies she appeared in. It's not that he blames Anne for having a past before they met, but history has always mattered to him.

Editorial Reviews

• "Funny, sad and faintly ominous... making jealousy tangible and dangerous." --Spectator 

   • "An intelligent and addictive entertainment... Mr. Barnes has succeeded in writing one of those books that keep us up until 2am reading just one chapter more... few will be able to resist its easy humour and almost insidious readability." --New York Times Book Review
