Winner of the Booker Prize 1998

Two old friends - Cline Linley and Vernon Halliday - meet at the funeral of gorgeous, witty Molly Lane. Both men had been Molly's lovers years before their dazzling success; Clive is Britain's most eminent modern composer and Vernon is the editor of the respected broadsheet, The Judge.

In the weeks that follow, Clive and Vernon's lives become bound together in ways neither could have imagined. Two dubious moral decisions and a pact made in extremis lead them both to the heart of Amsterdam.

“Don't waste your time”

If there was the option of a no star rating, this book would be a deserving recipient. Ludicrous ending. A much overrated book and quite how it was shortlisted I have no idea!

“Amsterdam”

Utterly amazing. You kind of think it may happen but are lost for words when it does. The book is thoughtful, poignent and never more relative than it is today but also a timeless classic
