Booker Prize–winning British author Julian Barnes returns to Sydney Writers’ Festival to introduce his latest novel, Elizabeth Finch. Charting the story of a remarkable teacher through the recollections of a former student, the book has been hailed as a loving tribute to philosophy, a careful evaluation of history and an invitation to think for ourselves. Julian appears live via video, in conversation with host of ABC Radio National’s The Book Show Claire Nichols, to discuss how questions of love, friendship and biography are woven through the story and his broader body of work, including Flaubert’s Parrot and The Sense of an Ending.

Julian Barnes appears thanks to the support of Rowena Danziger AM, in memory of Ken Coles AM and his support of SWF over 25 years.
