Synopses & Reviews
No one has a better perspective to see things from both sides of the Channel than Julian Barnes. He is not only one of the premier writers in Britain but his prize-winning work has long been admired and recognised in France. In these exquisitely crafted and turned stories spanning several centuries, Julian Barnes takes as his universal theme the British in France, our fascination with the country, our various and mixed reasons for being there and our sometimes ambiguous reception.
A collection of brilliantly crafted short stories, spanning several centuries and developing the theme of the British in France, their fascination for the country and sometimes ambiguous reception.
