Julian Barnes – Flaubert’s Parrot

Flaubert’s Parrot, a novel by Julian Barnes was short-listed for the Booker Prize in 1984. The book is an investigation of Flaubert’s life and a search for the stuffed parrot that sat on Flaubert’s desk when he was writing A Simple Heart.

As Julian Barnes explains in Flaubert’s Parrot, there is more than one contender for being the actual stuffed parrot, including this one in Flaubert’s Pavilion.
