Part of the Picador thirty series
Barnes's prize-winning novel has charmed readers since its first publication in 1984 - 'A tour de force' Germaine Greer; 'A book to revel in' Joseph Heller; 'A delight' John Fowles; 'An intricate and delightful novel' Graham Greene - and has become a classic.
Our narrator is Geoffrey Braithwaite, a retired doctor with a passion for Flaubert.
As he leads us on an investigative trip through France and through the past, we are offered a glimpse of the writer who so fascinates him.
At the same time the layers of Braithwaite's own past are peeled away to reveal someone infinitely more troubled than he first seemed.
