|Plot Summary of Flaubert's Parrot|
|"Retired doctor and Flaubert scholar, Geoffrey Braithwaite, narrates this semi-biographical novel about the French writer's life and work, whilst giving little away about himself. Yet, as the story unfolds and Braithwaite comes to sense the futility of language and the frustrations of accurately documenting the life of his beloved Flaubert, he begins to reveal something of his troubled past."
