Julian Barnes

novelist

At the age of ten Julian Barnes was told by his mother than he had too much imagination. It is this imagination that has inspired and led Barnes to become one of the most accredited writers of the day. His recent publications include The Sense of an Ending, which won the 2011 Man Booker Prize, Through the Window: Seventeen Essays (and One Short Story), and Levels of Life. In 2011 Barnes won the David Cohen Prize for Literature. When Barnes first began work, he had debilitating levels of shyness which led him to be seen as a mute member of staff. Replacing his spoken word with written word, Barnes has developed himself to become one of the most influential writers of our time.
