British and Francophile novelist Julian Barnes has won several important awards in his homeland and in other European countries. He is recognized as one of Britain's finest living authors.
Between 2005 and 2009, Open Books published 7 of his novels, including his first novel, Metroland, and other major works such as the critically acclaimed Flaubert's Parrot and the love triangle novel Talking It Over. Open Books' Barnes collection also features the stories from A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters and The Lemon Table.
These skillfully crafted works were all translated by the same translator, who sparing no efforts to introduce Julian Barnes to Korean readers. The appeal of this collection is not only literary but also aesthetic as it features a wonderfully colorful set of original cover artwork.
