Arthur & Georgeby Julian Barnes
Synopses & Reviews
As boys, George, the son of a Midlands vicar, and Arthur, living in shabby genteel Edinburgh, find themselves in a vast and complex world at the heart of the British Empire. Years later-- one struggling with his identity in a world hostile to his ancestry, the other creating the world' s most famous detective while in love with a woman who is not his wife- their fates become inextricably connected.
In Arthur & George, Julian Barnes explores the grand tapestry of late-Victorian Britain to create his most intriguing and engrossing novel yet.
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and a Richard & Judy Book Club choice, this accessible and profound novel is now published in paperback. Centring on a Victorian "cause celebre" Barnes brings the period, the case and the inner lives of the two main characters vividly to life. 'This novel is Barnes at his best' "Times"
