    Description

    Shortlisted for the Costa Book Awards 2020  

    The Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Sense of an Ending takes us on a rich, witty tour of Belle Epoque Paris, via the life story of the pioneering surgeon Samuel Pozzi.  

    In the summer of 1885, three Frenchmen arrived in London for a few days’ shopping. One was a Prince, one was a Count and the third was a commoner with an Italian name, who four years earlier had been the subject of one of John Singer Sargent’s greatest portraits.  

    The three men's lives play out against the backdrop of the Belle Epoque in Paris. The beautiful age of glamour and pleasure more often showed its ugly side: hysterical, narcissistic, decadent and violent, a time of rampant prejudice and blood-and-soil nativism, with more parallels to our own age than we might imagine.   

    Our guide through this world is Samuel Pozzi, society doctor, pioneer gynaecologist and free-thinker, a rational and scientific man with a famously complicated private life.  

    The Man in the Red Coat is at once a fresh and original portrait of the French Belle Epoque – its heroes and villains, its writers, artists and thinkers – and a life of a man ahead of his time. Witty, surprising and deeply researched, the new book from Julian Barnes illuminates the fruitful and longstanding exchange of ideas between Britain and France and makes a compelling case for keeping that exchange alive.

    Pertinence and Intelligence

    This book is wonderful by its accuracy, preciseness, intelligence , tolerance and empathy. Julian Barnes is right: the more languages you speak and the best you can try to understand other cultures even if those cultures are very close, geographically speaking. As usual , Saul Reichlin is extraordinary in his reading, rendering of characters and situations, and mastering foreign languages. Thank you both Julian and Saul!!! And be safe!!!

    gossipy compilation for francophiles

    This isn't a novel. It's a meandering compilation of anecdotes, odd historical connections, and a few speculations having to do mainly with writers, artists, and scientists of the late 19th century/early 20h century, mainly French. The central figure through it all is Pozzi, a famous French gynecologist. Fun for Francophiles like Barnes. Decidedly baggy and rather unstructured.
