Retrospectively imagined memorials: Cross Channel and The Lemon Table

Show Summary Details

Preview

Barnes has written two volumes of loosely connected short stories. The first, Cross Channel (1995), is explicitly focused on a topic often associated with Barnes and his writing, the relationship between England and France. The second, The Lemon Table (2004), engages a number of themes that striate Barnes's work, such as ageing and death. It is a collection that treats in fictional form issues raised by his later memoir Nothing to Be Frightened of.
