Julian Barnes: Elizabeth Finch

Sydney Writers' Festival

Booker Prize-winning British author Julian Barnes returns to Sydney Writers’ Festival to introduce his latest novel, Elizabeth Finch. Charting the story of a remarkable teacher through the recollections of a former student, the book has been hailed as a loving tribute to philosophy, a careful evaluation of history and an invitation to think for ourselves. Julian appeared live via video at the 2022 Festival, in conversation with host of ABC Radio National’s The Book Show Claire Nichols, to discuss how questions of love, friendship and biography are woven through the story and his broader body of work, including Flaubert’s Parrot and The Sense of an Ending. Sydney Writers' Festival podcasts are available on all major podcast platforms.

Julian Barnes on ELIZABETH FINCH

Poured Over

“This is one of the great differences between journalism and literature, which I practice in. You write journalism in order for everything to be absolutely clear at the first reading … you write fiction in order to reflect the complexity of the world. And that complexity isn't necessarily grasped at first meeting.” Elizabeth Finch is the latest (and deceptively slim) new novel from Julian Barnes, author of the Booker Prize-winning novel The Sense of an Ending. He joins us on the show to talk about cutting to the chase, unreliable narrators, the intersection of time and memory and history, translating Flaubert, his friendships with fellow Booker Prize-winners Anita Brookner and Ian McEwan, electric typewriters and Blackwing pencils, and more with Poured Over’s host, Miwa Messer. And we finish this episode with TBR Topoff book recommendations from Marc and Becky.

Episode #326: Julian Barnes, CEO & Co-Founder, Boutique Fitness Solutions

HALO Talks: Elevating Wellness

CEO & Co-Founder of Boutique Fitness Solutions, Julian Barnes joins a rare club of HALO Talks guests making their second appearance! (First one here.) We're proud to join him at BFS's 4th Summit, April 28-30, 2022 at the Westin Times Square.  In a quick "state of the industry" after 2 years of COVID, Barnes tells us according to IHRSA, 30% of the studio market is now closed unfortunately. He discusses why that is and more importantly, what those studios who've remained (and in some cases, thrived) have done differently.  In terms of some thoughts on the future, Barnes states, "Digital isn't going anywhere. We're very much at the beginning. Virtual is not intended to be a national brand. Most studio owners aren't trying to compete with the Peloton and Daily Burn's of the world. They've realized that the role of virtual in their business model is to support existing clients . . . 80% of the industry is run by studios with 3 or fewer locations."  The BFS 2022 Summit has tracks for CEO's (their invite-only CEO Summit) as well as for Managers and other employees all under one roof with top speakers from across the country. Register at the links above, and hopefully we'll see you there!  Click here to download transcript.

Two Big Egos in a Small Car

How “normal” is London and its arts scene now as Graham reports back on his weekend trip? In turn, Charles talks up York after Step 4. The duo respond to shouts that M Night Shyamalan is back on form with his latest film, Old, and Graham assesses Manchester City and Gallagher brothers’ photographer Sharon Latham’s exhibition of Noel's High Flying Birds at RedHouse Originals, Harrogate. Graham asks, “Are the arts important?”, a question inspired by themes in Julian Barnes's classic debut novel, Metroland.
