Man Booker shortlist: Julian Barnes


The Sense of an Ending is the fourth Julian Barnes novel to be nominated for a Man Booker Prize, could it be the first to win?

"I've had a reasonably long experience of not winning," he tells arts correspondent Rebecca Jones.

The Sense of an Ending, he says, is based on the theme of "someone having their life turned upside-down at a late stage".

This is an extended version of the broadcast interview.
