Julian Barnes presents a collection of short stories featuring characters who are driven by success and loss. In East Wind, a divorced estate agent is happily in love with a European waitress, but nonetheless decides to investigate her enigmatic past. In Marriage Lines, a widower travels to a secluded Scottish island to relive his happiest memory. After a falling out, a couple reconciles over flowers in Gardener's World. And in The Limner, a deaf painter discovers his patron's true likeness.
