From the Publisher's Website:

Lebensstufen by Julian Barnes"Julian Barnes’ neues Buch handelt von Ballonfahrt, Fotografie, Liebe und Trauer. Davon, dass man zwei Menschen oder zwei Dinge verbindet und sie wieder auseinanderreißt. Einer der Juroren für den Man Booker Prize nannte Julian Barnes einen »beispiellosen Zauberer des Herzens«. Das vorliegende Buch bestätigt dies. Julian Barnes schreibt über die menschliche Existenz – auf der Erde und in der Luft. Wir lernen Nadar kennen, Pionier der Ballonfahrt und einer der ersten Fotografen, die Luftaufnahmen machten, sowie Colonel Fred Burnaby, der zum eigenwilligen Bewunderer der extravaganten Schauspielerin Sarah Bernhardt wird. Und wir lesen über Julian Barnes’ eigene Trauer über den Tod seiner Frau – schonungslos offen, präzise und tief berührend. Ein Buch über das Wagnis zu lieben."
