A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters

Posted on Oct 3, 2010 | 0 comments

by Julian Barnes.

This is the first work by Barnes I’ve read.  It’s a collection of loosely connected short stories and essays, each written in a different style.  I didn’t always understand what he was getting at, but it was a very entertaining read.  And some of the writing is very impressive, something to aspire to.  I’m looking forward to reading more Barnes, probably Flaubert’s Parrot.
