Pulse Summary

Pulse by Julian Barnes

The stories in Julian Barnes' long-awaited third collection are attuned to rhythms and currents: of the body, of love and sex, illness and death, connections and conversations. A divorcee falls in love with a mysterious European waitress; a widower relives a favourite holiday; two writers rehearse familiar arguments; a couple bond, fall out and bond again over flowers and vegetable patches. And at a series of evenings at 'Phil & Joanna's', the topics of conversation range from the environment to the Britishness of marmalade, from toilet graffiti to smoking, as we witness the guests' lives in flux. Ranging from the domestic to the extraordinary, from the vineyards of Italy to the English seaside in winter, the stories in Pulse resonate and spark.

Pulse Reviews

"Pulse is Barnes's 17th book and is a masterclass in the shorter form." -- Elizabeth Day * Observer *
"Julian Barnes writes so exquisitely that every page of this collection contains literary pearls" * Mail on Sunday *
"All the stories in Pulse have the absolute completeness and density of the very best short fiction" * New Statesman *
"Masterclasses in the form, full of the sidelong wit and intelligence that make the writer one of our most consistently deft short-form stylists" * Daily Telegraph *
"Barnes' stylish prose, eye for emotional detail and sense of absurdity never let him down... He suits the short story very well" * Literary Review *
