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. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.


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, 05/01/2005

Review:

"Will Barnes ever write a dull or mediocre novel? On the strength of this one and all the others that preceded it, the prospect seems increasingly unlikely."

Brendan Bernhard, L.A. Weekly, 01/14/2006
