Join us to explore together a wintry and sinister novel in our next Between the Lines reading walking book club.

Written soon after the Second World War, Graham Greene’s short novel The End of the Affair is set a few years earlier. Bendrix, the narrator is a professional writer and published author, known by his last name, begins an affair with the wife of a civil servant during the London Blitz as part of his research for a novel.  Ended by Sarah without explanation, a chance meeting two years later, rekindles his lost love and burgeoning jealousy.  His obsessive pursuit of her is set in and around Clapham Common: he living on the south side and Sarah and her husband Henry on the north side.

‘One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody’s language’ William Faulkner
