The Porcupine

The Porcupine - Julian Barnes First thing I've read by Barnes and against my expectations after taking a second look at the blurb, I quite liked it. It was a short read with a solid plot, and mildly interesting enough characters that kept my attention. It kind of ran out of steam towards the end, but not so much that I'd felt I'd wasted my time. It passed a couple of hours, at any rate.
