"Flaubert's Parrot" blends real biographical facts about the life of Flaubert, literary criticism, travel writing, and stream of conscience-style narration at points to create a singular work that is a breath of fresh air. One of those books that you have to keep reading because the voice and style are so surprising and consistently funny, yet meditative. And don't worry, you don't need to have already read Madame Bovary- though this book will probably make you want to.
