arthur & george

This book my companion
Of vacation & little plane trips

Novel based on true facts
England and 20th century begins
George Edalji (Aydlji) and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The protagonists

Barnes is a very different Barnes
From the Barnes on The Lemon Table, or Flaubert’s Parrot

But his words go stylishly fine with Conan Doyle, the Epoch
And George’s British stoicism

A fine novel with delicious tints of tensions
As on the best crime fiction
A sweet after taste of a good case of Sherlock Holmes
early named... Sheridan Hope!
