BOOKER PRIZE NOMINEE**• The literary detective story of a retired doctor who is obsessed with the 19th century French author Flaubert—and with tracking down a stuffed parrot that once inspired him • From the internationally bestselling author of The Sense of an Ending**

Julian Barnes playfully combines a detective story with a character study of its detective, embedded in a brilliant riff on literary genius.

A compelling weave of fiction and imaginatively ordered fact, Flaubert's Parrot is by turns moving and entertaining, witty and scholarly, and a tour de force of seductive originality.
