It’s a rainy Sunday afternoon and I just finished listening to CBC Radio’s Writers and Company with Eleanor Wachtel. Today’s interview, “Julian Barnes about love, loss and Dmitri Shostakovich,” included extensive discussion of Barnes’ most recent book, The Noise of Time.
I’d highly recommend the book, and Eleanor Wachtel’s interview is a good introduction. If you missed it, you can find and listen to this interview by going to http://www.cbc.ca/radio/writersandcompany. I reviewed this novel on April 3: http://schatjesshelves.blogspot.ca/2016/04/review-of-noise-of-time-by-julian-barnes.html.
I’m a real fan of Julian Barnes’ writing. Last year, on December 2, I posted my review of his previous novel, The Sense of an Ending: http://schatjesshelves.blogspot.ca/2015/12/book-advent-calendar-day-two-sense-of.html. I learned, from Wachtel’s interview, that this book is being made into a film!
