The noise of time by Julian Barnes( Book )
42 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Spanish and held by 1,933 libraries worldwide
"A compact masterpiece dedicated to the Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich--Julian Barnes's first novel since his best-selling, Booker Prize-winning The Sense of an Ending. 1936: Shostakovich, just thirty, fears for his livelihood and his life. Stalin, hitherto a distant figure, has taken a sudden interest in his work and denounced his latest opera. Now, certain he will be exiled to Siberia (or, more likely, shot dead on the spot), he reflects on his predicament, his personal history, his parents, various women and wives, his children all of those hanging in the balance of his fate. And though a stroke of luck prevents him from becoming yet another casualty of the Great Terror, for years to come he will be held fast under the thumb of despotism: made to represent Soviet values at a cultural conference in New York City, forced into joining the Party, and compelled, constantly, to weigh appeasing those in power against the integrity of his music. Barnes elegantly guides us through the trajectory of Shostakovich's career, at the same time illuminating the tumultuous evolution of the Soviet Union. The result is both a stunning portrait of a relentlessly fascinating man and a brilliant meditation on the meaning of art and its place in society"--

Keeping an eye open : essays on art by Julian Barnes( Book )
19 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 988 libraries worldwide
"An extraordinary collection--hawk-eyed and understanding--from the Booker Prize-winning, best-selling author of The Sense of an Ending and Levels of Life. As Julian Barnes explains: "Flaubert believed that...great paintings required no words of explanation. Braque thought the ideal state would be reached when we said nothing at all in front of a painting....But it is a rare picture that stuns, or argues, us into silence. And if one does, it is only a short time before we want to explain and understand the very silence into which we have been plunged." This is the exact dynamic that informs his new book. Barnes, in his 1989 novel A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters, had a chapter on Gericault's The Raft of the Medusa, and since then he has written about many great masters of nineteenth- and twentieth-century art, including Delacroix, Manet, Fantin-Latour, Cezanne, Degas, Redon, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Braque, Magritte, Oldenburg, Howard Hodgkin, and Lucian Freud. The seventeen essays gatheredhere are adroit, insightful and, above all, a true pleasure to read " --
Before she met me by Julian Barnes( Book )
89 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 852 libraries worldwide
Graham was an historian: he was meant to be an expert on the past. But there were aspects of it, he discovered, that couldn't be subdued, that simply carried on, lively and painful, as if they were the present. He began to mind. He minded very much indeed. While those around him look on - with concern, with contempt, with amusement - Graham's meticulous passion gradually begins to run out of control. Julian Barnes presents an unnerving version of sexual jealousy and shows it to be not just living, but reasonable, ordinary, funny, dangerous and consuming

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
In these seventeen essays, and one short story, the 2011 Man Booker Prize winner examines British, French and American writers who have meant the most to him, as well as the crosscurrents of their different cultures. From the deceptiveness of Penelope Fitzgerald to the directness of Hemingway, from Kipling's view of France to the French view of Kipling, Julian Barnes considers what fiction is, and what it can do. As he writes in his preface, 'Novels tell us the most truth about life: what it is, how we live it, what it might be for, how we enjoy and value it, and how we lose it.'

"En una población costera un agente inmobiliario divorciado inicia una relación con una camarera extranjera y acabará descubriendo un secreto doloroso; dos escritoras ya mayores comparten giras de conferencias, una larga amistad, tiranteces, celos, maldades y confidencias; un hombre regresa a la isla escocesa en la que pasó días felices con su fallecida esposa; en los albores de la historia de Estados Unidos un pintor de retratos se venga de un detestable cliente; un hombre queda fascinado por una mujer aquejada de una enfermedad de la piel que la obliga a llevar guantes; un hijo rememora la historia de amor de sus padres, que llega hasta el lecho de muerte-- Y, junto a ellos, una pareja en crisis con la jardinería como campo de batalla; unos amantes cuyas tensiones tienen como telón de fondo los bellos paisajes que recorren en sus excursiones, y un grupo de amigos que en las noches londinenses hablan desordenadamente y con altas dosis de ingenio sobre lo divino y lo humano."--Contratapa
