Which of two stuffed parrots was the inspiration for one of Flaubert's greatest stories? Why did the master keep changing the color of Emma Bovary's eyes? And why should it matter so much to Geoffrey Braithwaite, a retired doctor haunted by a private secret? In Flaubert's Parrot, Julian Barnes spines out a multiple mystery of obsession and betrayal (both scholarly and romantic) and creates an exuberant inquiry into the ways in which art mirrors life and then turns around to shape it.

    " Took me a long time to get into it, but I'm glad I persevered. Only my second Barnes book (after Metroland) and - I think - widely thought of as his magnum opus, I personally preferred the earlier book. I will read more by him though. "

    " What a marvelous book to enjoy! I found myself smiling or smirking at least once a page, enjoy chuckling out loud. Each "chapter" can stand alone, a gem unto itself. "
