A new collection of short stories from the author of Flaubert's Parrot, The Lemon Table, Nothing to Be Frightened Of, and Arthur & George. 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, each imbued with the humor, poignancy, and perception that marks Julian Barnes’ work. This is an imaginative and expertly constructed new collection from a master of the form.
