Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
Set against the backdrop of the British Empire, an intriguing novel by the author of Flaubert's Parrot chronicles the lives of two boys--George, the son of a Midlands vicar, and Arthur, growing up in Edinburgh--one who is forgotten by history, and one who becomes the creator of the world's most famous detective, as they pursue their separate destinies until they meet in a remarkable alliance.

Review:
"It would be a damn fine tale even if Barnes had made the whole thing up; that it is drawn from history makes it all the more resonant. And, of course, like all good historical fiction, ARTHUR & GEORGE--if you read between the lines--is as much about our times as those in which it is set."

Martyn Bedford, Literary Review, July 2005

Review:
"[A] beautifully crafted novel, as one would expect from a virtuouso like Barnes, who can make a rounded portrait out of a few sparse brush strokes."

Terry Eagleton, Nation, 02/20/2006
