About the Book

Levels of Life

Julian Barnes, author of the Man Booker Prize-winning novel THE SENSE OF AN ENDING, gives us his most powerfully moving book yet, beginning in the nineteenth century and leading seamlessly into an entirely personal account of loss --- making LEVELS OF LIFE an immediate classic on the subject of grief.
LEVELS OF LIFE is a book about ballooning, photography, love and loss; about putting two things, and two people, together, and about tearing them apart. One of the judges who awarded Barnes the 2011 Booker Prize described him as “an unparalleled magus of the heart.” This book confirms that opinion.
