"[Barnes's] ambitions expand and contract from novel to novel." --New York Times

"Mr. Barnes has always enjoyed playing with form and style, the porous border between fiction and nonfiction. . . . Over the course of Elizabeth Finch, Mr. Barnes frequently reminds us of the potency of mythmaking." --Wall Street Journal

"Elegant. . . . Elizabeth Finch is erudite yet accessible." --Star Tribune

"A lyrical, thoughtful, and intriguing exploration of love, grief, and the collective myths of history. Barnes adds yet another remarkable title to his astoundingly remarkable body of work." --Booklist

"A novel of ideas . . . with barely a sentence in it that doesn't have some nutritional value . . . I'll remember Elizabeth Finch when most other characters I've met this year have faded." --John Self, The Times (UK)

"A singular tale." --Daily Mail (UK)

"Everything Barnes writes changes everything . . . Barnes's latest novel, must be read at least twice for the full force of its voltage to be felt . . . A cryptic crossword of a novel, Elizabeth Finch is a trickier and even brainier version of Flaubert's Parrot." --Frances Wilson, Oldie

"The book's central and most enthralling section . . . deals with a figure Elizabeth Finch esteemed as a kindred spirit: Julian the Apostate . . . A bravura exercise in nimbly handled erudition . . . [Elizabeth Finch] also celebrates the cast of mind Barnes most prizes. A connoisseur and master of irony himself, he fills this book with instances of its exhilarating power." --Peter Kemp, Sunday Times

"Elizabeth Finch ranks alongside Barnes' best." --Joshua Pugh Ginn, UK Press Syndication

"A new novel from Booker Prize winner Julian Barnes is always a literary event, and Elizabeth Finch . . . is not different. Wistful, thought-provoking stuff." --Sunday Telegraph

"This is . . . Julian Barnes . . . in his best ambitious high concept mode, serious and playful at once." --Lindsay Duguid, Tablet, *Novel of the Week*
