"In Levels of Life, author Julian Barnes, winner of the 2011 Man Booker prize for his novel The Sense of an Ending, mourns his wife's death. He does so at indirectly at first, expressing the love they shared through elegant essays that celebrate the love between 19th-century aeronauts and their passion for flight itself. Finally, Barnes more directly addresses his grief, describing briefly the illness and death of his wife, Pat Kavanagh, and considering at greater length his emotions and the universality of loss and loneliness."
