Flaubert's Parrot

Julian Barnes, read by Richard Morant. AudioGO, unabridged, seven CDs, 7 hrs., $21.95 ISBN 978-1-60998-257-7
Barnes's contemporary classic follows loosely in the footsteps of acclaimed 19th-century French novelist Gustave Flaubert, serving as capsule biography, work of critical art, record of cross-generational authorial jealousy, and a portrait of obsession. As the protagonist meditates on Madame Bovary, while giving us quick glimpses into the source of his own fixation on the novel—like Emma, his own wife was unfaithful and committed suicide—Richard Morant keeps pace, following Barnes as he dips and dives through a dizzying variety of styles. A Vintage paperback. (Apr.)
