329 thought on “The Man in the Red Coat

  1. So, this isOK The named subject is interesting and, at least the gynecological stuff, unusual But the book reads like Barnes dictated this freestyle and nobody edited it and he didn t think about the shape or narrative It s riffing And while the stuff about Pozzi is new to me , its padded with all the usual stuff about belle poque Paris Dreyfus, Wilde, etc As a magazine piece, fine Not a real book And Barnes is very much thew giver His judgements are wild, unsubstantiated, and highly dubious I d [...]


  2. I have been a long time admirer of Julian Barnes literary works having been introduced to him with his Flaubert s Parrot Since then I have read all his published works under the name Julian Barnes and I am happy to say that this one does not disappoint.In it, he used his encounter with the John Singer Sargent painting of Dr Pozzi at home in which Dr Pozzi, a noted French Surgeon, is painted as a young man in a scarlet robe, as a metaphor for examining the s, lives and relationships in belle epoc [...]


  3. I enjoyed reading this book but was baffled by its lack of index and footnotes and chronology and chapters and bibliography These are minimal requirements for any history and make no mistake, this is a history, not a novel Yet they are all missing Consequently the prose reads like fiction, and for all I know Barnes may have made up the story to amuse himself I don t know why he and publisher decided to take this approach No explanation is offered in a preface I would call the decision cheeky at [...]


  4. about a time when things were perhaps less so there is a wonderful line about an unexpected benefit of the Great War Fans of linear narrative will have to look elsewhere but Barnes darts around France and England and even America filling in a picture of the artistic and scientific world of the time Delightful prose and sly asides as always.


  5. I spent much of my time while reading this book trying to figure out what it was, and who was who, and if there was any plot or even a narrative arc If you don t know much about the Belle Epoque or recognize many of the main players Huysmans, Wilde you ll spend a lot of time trying to remember who was who and what they did and what they were like and why or whether you should care The book jumps around in time, and jumps from anecdote to anecdote, often with little or even no connection The auth [...]


  6. Barnes s account of the life and work of Dr Samuel Pozzi, eminent French gynecologist and surgical innovator, is a treasure trove of delicious information about the great and not so great of the Belle Epoque I ve always admired Barnes s intelligence and erudition, and both are on display here, even if the text does contain some repetition I didn t mind that, as it helped to be reminded of things I d read tens of pages earlier The biography if that s what it is has its origin in the portrait of P [...]



  7. With so many characters to follow, this is a very difficult book, not for everyone, to read however, disclosure of so many aspects of the principals is worth the effort This is another A accomplishment by Julian Barnes, one of my favorite authors, who always manages to astonish his readers.


  8. Barnes is undoubtedly one of our greatest writers, they tend towards the effete, are cultured, sophisticated and such licentiousness seems to be the norm, along with gossip the difficulty for me has been that the sheer volume variety of information, no matter how interesting the individual units, becomes difficult to negotiate I m persevering because so far there has been much to enjoy I m sure it has to offer But I feel rather like a swimmer in a clear blue sea who finds themselves out of their [...]


  9. I am not sure what to make of this book The title implies that the book will be based on The Man in the Red Coat i.e Samuel Pozzi but the overall drift of the book is a series of thoughts and anecdotes about the period in which Pozzi lived and its personalities.If you are an aficionado of the Belle poque period and if you are a fan of writers of the era such as Huysmans then you will probably enjoy this book than I did Funnily enough, our last book club book was Submission by Houellebecq in whic [...]
