This collection of short stories was uneven. Don’t I say this about every collection of short stories? Well, except for the one I found evenly bad, but I won’t mention any names.The book’s main theme is the relations between French and British, specifically the stories of Brits in France. Being neit...
I really liked one of the last stories, called The Dragons. Of course, all o the stories had something to be taken out from them, but I especially enjoyed that one. I think this will be one of the books that I will someday reread.
Incredibly enjoyable. By turns wryly funny and very moving. Up there with 'Duffy' and 'Metroland' as my favourite thing Julian Barnes has done.
