Until, that is, the day he discovers Ann's celluloid past as a mediocre film actress.

Julian Barnes's work has been marked by great variety, ranging not only from conventional fiction to postmodernist experimentation in such well-known novels as Flaubert's Parrot (1984) and A History of the World in 10 1⁄2 Chapters (1989), but also from witty essays to deeply touching short stories. The responses of readers and critics have likewise varied, from enthusiasm to scepticism, as the substantial volume of critical analysis demonstrates. This Readers' Guide provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the essential criticism on Barnes's work, drawing from a selection of reviews, interviews, essays and books. Through the presentation and assessment of key critical interpretations, Vanessa Guignery provides the most wide-ranging examination of his fiction and non-fiction so far, considering key issues such as his use of language, his treatment of history, obsession, love, and the relationship between fact and fiction. Covering all of the novels to date, from Metroland (1981) to Arthur and George (2005), this is an invaluable introduction to the work of one of Britain's most exciting and popular contemporary writers.

Praise for Sundays Child Carter has written a memoir that captures the quintessential America that now seems to be slipping away from us. A real treat. --John Tebbel, author and Journalist Deeply moving...the book is a delight and of course you write like a dream...Congratulations on what I believe we used to call a great read, and more than that, a deeply affecting record. --Ellen Feldman, author of Lucy and The Scottsboro Boys Praise for Nobody Yet Knows Who I Am In volume two of Robert Carters memoirs, the reader is again treated to the authors ruthlessly stark self-appraisal. Through the extraordinarily clarity of prose, the reader seems to share his experiences immediately rather than through the medium of words. His descriptions of his lovers, friends, and passing acquaintances drive the reader along. --James Scanlon, Professor Emeritus of History, Randolph-Macon College

The sexual revolution: an evocative term, but what meaning can be given to it today? How does 'sexuality' come into being and what connections does it have with the changes that have affected personal life on a more general plane? In answering these questions, Anthony Giddens disputes many of the dominant interpretations of the role of sexuality in modern culture. The emergence of what the author calls plastic sexuality - sexuality freed from its intrinsic relation to reproduction - is analysed in terms of the long-term development of the modern social order and social influences of the last few decades. Giddens argues that the transformation of intimacy, in which women have played the major part, holds out the possibility of a radical democratization of the personal sphere. This book will appeal to a large general audience as well as being essential reading for students and professionals.
