This review is from: Arthur & George (Paperback)
With Julian Barnes back in the news by winning the Booker Prize I suddenly realised I'd never read anything by him. Had meant to read Arthur & George but never got round to it. Absolutely loved it because I really enjoy true stories retold in the novel form. This was informative and entertaining and I read it on the level. It was especially interesting to read about Doyle and his eccentricities in juxtaposition with the straitlaced George. On top of everything it was a striking good yarn and would make a terrific television drama. Hats off to Barnes.
