From the winner of the 2011 Man Booker Prize for Fiction comes the highly entertaining sequel to Talking it Over. In Talking it Over Gillian and Stuart were married until Oliver - witty, feckless Oliver - stole Gillian away. In Love, etc Julian Barnes revisits the three of them, using the same intimate technique of allowing the characters to speak directly to the reader, to whisper their secrets, to argue for their version of the truth. Darker and deeper than its predecessor, Love, etc is a compelling exploration of contemporary love and its betrayals.

Love has many faces. From the sensual to the reflective, from the whimsical to the worrisome. Sometimes hard and sometimes so easy we feel we could lift off-straight to the clouds-love comes to us as friendships, romances, familial embraces. Love, Etc. explores the mixed experiences of love, in language infused with Barkat's signature sensual touch. Get ready to fall. In love with poems, words, and love.

Julian Barnes's work has been marked by great variety, ranging not only from conventional fiction to postmodernist experimentation in such well-known novels as Flaubert's Parrot (1984) and A History of the World in 10 1⁄2 Chapters (1989), but also from witty essays to deeply touching short stories. The responses of readers and critics have likewise varied, from enthusiasm to scepticism, as the substantial volume of critical analysis demonstrates. This Readers' Guide provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the essential criticism on Barnes's work, drawing from a selection of reviews, interviews, essays and books. Through the presentation and assessment of key critical interpretations, Vanessa Guignery provides the most wide-ranging examination of his fiction and non-fiction so far, considering key issues such as his use of language, his treatment of history, obsession, love, and the relationship between fact and fiction. Covering all of the novels to date, from Metroland (1981) to Arthur and George (2005), this is an invaluable introduction to the work of one of Britain's most exciting and popular contemporary writers.

Grenzen und Grenzüberschreitungen der Liebe

Studien zur Soziologie intimer Beziehungen II

Die Thematik dieses Bandes greift den Sachverhalt auf, daß die Konstitution des Beziehungstyps "Liebesbeziehung" ein (Interaktions-) Spiel mit normativen Grenzen und deren Überschreitung voraussetzt. Hierdurch entstehen Ambivalenzen: Der Vorgang des Sichverliebens geht einerseits mit einer Transzendenz des Alltags und der Alltagserfahrung einher, die als Übergang, Konversion oder auch Statuspassage aufgefaßt werden kann. Andererseits ist zu konstatieren, daß trotz aller gegenwärtigen Wandlungs- und Auflösungstendenzen dennoch sozialstrukturelle und kulturelle Grenzen innerhalb von Paarbeziehungen bestehen. Schließlich stellt sich auch die Frage, wie neue gesellschaftliche "Entgrenzungen" den Bestand intimer Beziehungen bedrohen.
