'The Sense of an Ending' by Julian Barnes

The Sense of an EndingTony Webster, a middle-aged man, thought an amicable divorce and retirement would give him peace until he is confronted with a past he thought he had left behind.

Life becomes complicated when Tony receives a mysterious legacy which forces him to re-examine his entire life.  Did he create a past which allowed him to live with himself?  Tony says that the difference between youth and age is "that when we are young we invent different futures for ourselves; when we are old, we invent different pasts for others."
