The Only Story: A novel By Julian Barnes Cover Image
$28.55
Out of Stock Indefinitely
ISBN: 9780525521211
Published: Knopf - April 17th, 2018

Barnes has crafted a beautifully honest and introspective novel about the decade-long love affair between Susan, middle aged and married, and nineteen years old Paul. The two meet at an exclusive tennis club outside of London and soon become inseparable. It is the 1960s, and their barely concealed romance causes embarrassment for their families and censure from their community. Barnes writes with real depth of feeling about the experience of falling in love and its heedless, self-centered sense of excitement. But even more heartfelt is Barnes’ depiction of love’s disintegration as Paul finds himself powerless to stop Susan from destroying herself and at the same time sabotaging the intimate physical and emotional bonds that they share. A luminous exploration of the tenuous phases of love and life.

If this wonderful book about the making of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY isn't as mesmerizing as the movie, that's only because few things in this world can mesmerize like director Stanley Kubrick. The years-long journey to the screen of his vision (and Arthur C. Clarke's, also no slouch) is vital, alive, fascinating, and amusing, as full of ego and ambition as a work of military history. There's even a crazy-brilliant general in charge.

Availability: NOT IN STOCK - Usually arrives in 7 - 14 business days
Published: W. W. Norton & Company - April 3rd, 2018

With resplendent storytelling Richard Powers conjures man’s ancient biological and emotional connection to trees. Each of the novel’s vulnerable characters seeks meaning and purpose in life, and each comes closer to obtaining it by striving to save diminishing forest land from mankind’s ambivalence and outright destruction. Powers’ interlinked narratives achieve what, in our times, seems nearly impossible: they make us feel the irrevocable loss of our nature heritage in a way that is original and resonant. While the lives of Powers’ characters comprise the novel’s engaging “overstory,” it is the trees’ unforgettable “understory” that forever will change the way that you think about the wonderous complexity and generosity of the arboreal world.
