The Only Story

The Only Story by Julian Barnes Jonathan Cape

‘Most of us have only one story to tell. I don’t mean that only one thing happens to us in our lives: there are countless events, which we turn into countless stories. But there’s only one that matters, only one finally worth telling. This is mine.’

Scheduled for publication in February 2018 in the UK and April in the US and Canada.
