Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
If Julian Barnes' new collection of stories has a theme, it is 'rage in age', as each character faces death in a different way. The settings range from 18th-century Sweden to the 'Barnet Shop', a hairdressing salon where an old man measures out his life in haircuts. In another story, a music lover campaigns against those who cough in concerts.
"Funny, sad, playful, savagely accurate about human relationships and failings, THE LEMON TABLE is vintage Julian Barnes."
Rachel Hore, Literary Review, March 2004Review:
"THE LEMON TABLE is very crisply done: there's pathos, there's humor...and, as you'd expect, there's a lot of fine writing."
Christopher Tayler, London Review of Books, 04/15/2004
