Began this at age 15 and lost my copy somewhere under a bed or on a plane. Looking forward to beginning again a decade or so later! Hooray Powell's!

Alisha C, January 14, 2012 (view all comments by Alisha C)
At first, the structure and style of this novel was unnerving. The material is not presented in traditional prose style, but rather seems to be organized in a way that suggests a researcher's notebook. The notebook belongs to an amateur Flaubert scholar and seemingly curious individual, Geoffrey Braithwaite. Braithwaite is at first interested in determining the true parrot kept by Flaubert, but along the way he explores art, truths, language, and literature.
