The Finkler question

£9.99

Product description

WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE Julian Treslove, a professionally unspectacular former BBC radio producer, and Sam Finkler, a popular Jewish philosopher, writer and television personality, are old school friends. Despite very different lives, they've never quite lost touch with each other - or with their former teacher, Libor Sevcik. Both Libor and Finkler are recently widowed, and together with Treslove they share a sweetly painful evening revisiting a time before they had loved and lost. It is that very evening, when Treslove hesitates a moment as he walks home, that he is attacked - and his whole sense of who and what he is slowly and ineluctably changes.

Overall, the book is in good condition, although there is some minor creasing down the spine and a few minor scuffs on the edges of the back cover. The pages of the book are in very good condition, with no staining or tears, resulting in the pages being internally clean and bright and aesthetically pleasing.
