FRONT ROW SPECIAL

JULIAN BARNES
Since Julian Barnes' first book Metroland was published in 1980, he has written eight novels and a collection of short stories, as well as various sets of essays and articles. Barnes' trademark however is a playful attitude towards literary form, and this is perhaps best shown in Flaubert's Parrot, his third book which was shortlisted for the 1984 Booker Prize, but which resisted categorisation - part-essay, part-literary criticism, part-biography.

Barnes' new collection of short stories, The Lemon Table, is themed around ageing and death. In this Front Row special interview, Mark Lawson talks to Barnes in his London home about his writing career, why his Who's Who entry is so enigmatically brief, and why he shrugs off the label of Francophile despite an enduring attraction to all things French.

The Lemon Table is published by Jonathan Cape, 4 March 2004, ISBN 022407198X
