Book Overview
Only the author of Flaubert's Parrot could give us a novel that is at once a note-perfect rendition of the angsts and attitudes of English adolescence, a giddy comedy of sexual awakening in the 1960s, and a portrait of the accommodations that some of us call growing up and others selling out. Barnes writes like a dream.--Village Voice Literary Supplement.
