Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

This is, in short, a complete, unsettling, and frequently exhilarating vision of the world, starting with the voyage of Noah's ark and ending with a sneak preview of heaven!


Review:

"...from the bravura opening onwards--an irreverent history lesson via a worm's eye view of Noah's Ark--'History of the World...' shapes up not only as Barnes's funniest novel but also his most richly cargoed and imaginatively designed...as satirist and story-teller he has few equals at present."

Anthony Quinn, New Statesman, 06/23/1989

Review:

"When the performance works...the result is both difficult and splendid...[Barnes is] a novelist who uses his imagination as an instrument for thought."

Michael Wood, Times Literary Supplement, 06/30/1989
