Julian Barnes, Arthur & George
What does he [George] know? Does he finally know anything? What is the sum of knowledge he's acquired in his 54 years? Mostly, he has gone through his life learning and waiting to be told. The authority of others has always been important to him. Does he have any authority of his own? At 54, he thinks alot of things, he believes a few, but what can he really claim to know?
