From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of The Sense of an Ending—a rich, witty, revelatory tour of Belle Époque Paris, via the remarkable life story of the pioneering surgeon, Samuel Pozzi. In the summer of 1885, three Frenchmen arrived in London for a few days' intellectual shopping: a prince, a count, and a commoner with an Italian name. In time, each of these men would achieve a certain level of renown, but who were they then and what was the significance of their sojourn to England? Answering these questions, Julian Barnes unfurls the stories of their lives which play out against the backdrop of the Belle Époque in Paris. Our guide through this world is Samuel Pozzi, the society doctor, free-thinker and man of science with a famously complicated private life who was the subject of one of John Singer Sargent's greatest portraits. In this vivid tapestry of people (Henry James, Sarah Bernhardt, Oscar Wilde, Proust, James Whistler, among many others), place, and time, we see not merely an epoch of glamour and pleasure, but, surprisingly, one of violence, prejudice, and nativism—with more parallels to our own age than we might imagine. The Man in the Red Coat is, at once, a fresh portrait of the Belle Époque; an illuminating look at the longstanding exchange of ideas between Britain and France; and a life of a man who lived passionately in the moment but whose ideas and achievements were far ahead of his time.

CHRISTMAS MONSTERS AND AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS!The women of Gunfighter Gothic are spending the holidays in France, but they won't get a moment's rest before they're faced with a whole new set of challenges that test their partnership. Fresh off the horrors of Kraken Moor, Hanna & Jill want nothing more than some down time, but their most dangerous foe won't let them. The Man in the Red Coat has escaped from Hell, and he's determined to enact an epic revenge. Confronting them where they are would be far too simple for the being who lives at the end of time, so he goes after not only who they are, but who they were, walking back through their timelines to replace the lives they lived with one he creates. As he torments their past, a host of Yuletide nightmares wage an assault on their present: Who is the monstrous Krampus? What dangers lie in the transformative waters of Sinterklaas? Why have they been entered in a fighting tournament to the death against twisted personifications of the Twelve Days of Christmas? And ultimately, if they survive these physical monsters, will they have anything left for the psychical attacks of The Man in the Red Coat? How can Hanna & Jill fight a foe who can be anywhere at any point in time? THE MAN IN THE RED COAT is the fourth Gunfighter Gothic novel.
