9780099498063: Arthur and George

Julian Barnes' Man Booker Prize-shortlisted novel is based on Arthur Conan Doyle's extraordinary real-life fight for justice. 'Julian Barnes...has taken the bones of a long-dead history and imbued them with vivid and memorable life' - "Observer". "Arthur and George" is based on the true story of two men. One is Arthur Conan Doyle, the other is George Edalji, a solicitor from Birmingham. Their nineteenth-century lives are worlds and miles apart, until a series of shocking events brings them together. In dubious circumstances, George is found guilty of harming animals and is sentenced to seven years' penal servitude - a future of ignominious obscurity. However, when Arthur, who is now one of the most famous men in the land as creator of Sherlock Holmes, hears of this racist miscarriage of justice he decides to clear George's name...Told against the backdrop of Arthur's family life - his own passionate affair with the woman who was to become the second Lady Conan Doyle and his wife's lengthy battle with TB - this extraordinary novel is a dazzling exercise in detection. Julian Barnes is the author of ten novels, including "Metroland", "Flaubert's Parrot", "A History of the World in 10 Chapters", "England, England" and "Love, etc.", and two collections of short stories, "Cross Channel" and "The Lemon Table".

Product Description:

As boys, George, the son of a Midlands vicar, and Arthur, living in shabby genteel Edinburgh, find themselves in a vast and complex world at the heart of the British Empire. Years later—one struggling with his identity in a world hostile to his ancestry, the other creating the world’s most famous detective while in love with a woman who is not his wife–their fates become inextricably connected.

In Arthur & George, Julian Barnes explores the grand tapestry of late-Victorian Britain to create his most intriguing and engrossing novel yet.

Review:

"This novel is Barnes at his best" - P.D. James.
