The Man Booker Prize (nominee)
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.

    But there are moments when I’m so tired that I feel I’m liquefying like an old Camembert.

    1854: I pigeon-hole my life, and keep everything in its place; I’m as full of drawers and compartments as an old travelling trunk, all roped up and fastened with three big leather straps.
