Julian Barnes, one of England’s most esteemed novelists, reads from and discusses his highly acclaimed new novel, Arthur & George.

“In this combination psychological novel, detective story and literary thriller, Barnes elegantly dissects early 20th-century English society as he spins this true-life story with subtle and restrained irony… Shortlisted for the Booker, this novel about love, guilt, identity and honor is a triumph of storytelling…” Publishers Weekly.

Intriguing, relentless and, most of all, moving, Arthur & George richly extends the reach and achievement of a novelist described by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “a dazzling mind in mercurial flight.”

($24.95) Knopf ISBN # 0-307-26310-x.
