Julian Barnes's Nothing to be Frightened of is, among many things, a family memoir, an exchange with his brother (a philosopher), a meditation on morality and the fear of death, a celebration of art, an argument with and about God, and homage to the French writer Jules Renard.
Though he warns us that 'this is not my autobiography', the result is a tour of the mind of one of our most brilliant writers.
Available from BBC Audiobooks at http://www.audible.co.uk/, which also has a short excerpt available online. Julian Barnes reads his book in its entirety, complete & unabridged.
