Author Julian Barnes

EducationAuthor Julian Barnes, winner of the 2011 Man Booker prize for his novel The Sense of an Ending, comes to the Menlo-Atherton Center for the Performing Arts to discuss his latest book, The Noise of Time. This fictionalized biography of Dmitri Shostakovich, which The Guardian called "Barnes' masterpiece," is centered around three crucial points in the Russian composer's life: The aftermath of a scathing review of one of his operas, a postwar propaganda tour of the United States and the bitter years near the end of his life.
