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.
