Barnes manages to be erudite but extremely funny too... You never know what Barnes is going to do next and I admire that.' -- Caroline Rees * Daily Express *
Delightful and enriching... A book to revel in! -- Joseph Heller
Endless food for thought, beautifully written... A tour de force -- Germaine Greer
A gem: an unashamed literary novel that is also unashamed to be readable, and broadly entertaining. Bravo! -- John Irving
Julian Barnes' wry and graceful book, part novel, part stealthy literary criticism, traces the marks Flaubert made on a forgetting world. The writing is unfailingly sharp and often very funny, and among the best prose I have read in years * Sunday Times *
