About this book
These acclaimed novels by Julian Barnes are being republished in a modern, attractive series style. "Flaubert's Parrot" is also being published in the "Vintage Classics" livery this month.
Beginning with a stowaway's account of life on board Noah's Ark, this book presents a subversive, fictional history of earth told from several kaleidoscopic perspectives. It features a journey to the Titanic, to the Amazon, to the raft of the Medusa, and to an ecclesiastical court in medieval France where a bizarre case is about to begin.
