Arthur and George (Vintage International) by Julian Barnes
Arthur and George (Vintage International)

Kelly Stark, January 1, 2011

The only thing East Indian about George is his dark skin; otherwise, he is the most English of the English: stolid, plodding, sure of being a citizen of the finest country on earth, proud to be a member of England's judiciary. Arthur is also English, of the cricket, social, well-married type, and just as certain there is justice in England. He's also the author of the most famous detective novels in English history and makes it a point of honor to exonerate George of the barbaric crimes he's been convicted of. One of these men never lies, and the other lies all the time, but they are both men of honor and good character. The pas de deux of these men's lives is one very fine novel.
