Sinopsis: A novel about the most dramatic political downfall of our time - that of Eastern Europe. The author won the Prix Medicis with "Flaubert's Parrot". He also wrote "A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters" and "Metroland".
"Critics have overlooked his tenderness, underestimated his intelligence, and denied his wisdom... The Porcupine is a superbly accomplished novella" ( Nick Hornby)
"A minor masterpiece of political satire: compelling, funny and frightening" ( Robert Harris)
" The Porcupine is a new indisputable proof of Mr Barnes's creative power, yet what really astonished me, the Prosecutor, was the amazing precision of the intellectual's view of a socialist dictator, which so accorded with Zhivkov's true character" ( Prosecutor Zhekov, official prosecutor of the deposed Bulgarian leader Todor Zhivkov)
"The neatness of the novel's structure is complemented by the rampageous energy of the characters for which it is the cage" ( Daily Telegraph)
