Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0330300059, Paperback)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.

Graham was a historian, so he was perfectly used to dealing with matters of the past. But there are some aspects of what has gone before that he is not so comfortable with, specifically that of his wife's sexual history. What begins as an amusing diversion now threatens to send Graham's life out of control.
