Julian Barnes is quite the author! Some stories appealed to me more than others, but I really loved how he ended the book. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0330349112, Paperback)

No one has a better perspective to see things from both sides of the Channel than Julian Barnes. He is not only one of the premier writers in Britain but his prize-winning work has long been admired and recognized in France. In these exquisitely crafted and turned stories spanning several centuries, Julian Barnes takes as his universal theme the British in France, our fascination with the country, our various and mixed reasons for being there and our sometimes ambiguous reception.

This is a collection of 10 short stories about the British in France through the centuries. The stories are designed to play off each other and work as a whole, exploring the British fascination with France.
