A History of the World in 10.5 Chapters

Julian Barnes Ten Half Julian Barnes takes readers on a journey through a series of tenuously interconnected chapters. From a stowaway woodworm to a cruise liner held hostage, Barnes asks readers to question the purpose of narrative as a means of information transfer. In classic Barnes fashion issues of historiography are rampantly at work and the notions of history and memory are challenged. This is a great read for senior students who are looking to explore post-modern fiction. M4stars
