The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

 

This intense novel follows Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, as he contends with a past he never thought much about – until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance: one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony thought he left his tumultuous past behind as he built a life for himself, and his career has provided him with a secure retirement and an amicable relationship with his ex-wife and daughter, who now has a family of her own. But when he is presented with a mysterious legacy, he is forced to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world.

Leonardo Da Vinciby Walter Isaacson

 

Leonardo da Vinci was history's most creative genius - what secrets can he teach us? Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo's astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson, author of bestselling biographies Steve Jobs, Einstein and Benjamin Franklin weaves a narrative that connects da Vinci’s art to his science. Da Vinci produced the two most famous paintings in history - The Last Supper and Mona Lisa, but in his own mind, he was just as much a man of science and technology. With a passion that sometimes became obsessive, he pursued innovative studies of anatomy, fossils, birds, the heart, flying machines, botany, geology, and weaponry.
