Keeping an Eye Open is Man Booker Prize winning Julian Barnes' dazzling collection of essays on art. Looking at Manet, Freud and Picasso to name but a few, his writing is subtle and elegantly crafted.
 
As Julian Barnes puts it himself, "It is a rare picture which stuns, or argues, us into silence. And if one does, it is only a short time before we want to explain and understand the very silence into which we have been plunged."

MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] beautifully produced and judiciously illustrated collection." -- Keith Miller, 4 stars * Daily Telegraph *
"I became entirely mesmerised by Barnes' prose... Keeping an Eye Open is a rich and thoughtful book that should not be rushed. These essays are too full of chiaroscuro, their flashes of illumination too fascinating, their connections too interesting for a cursory reading." -- Roma Tearne * Independent *
"It's a readable, riveting, informed work with sharp, marvelous anecdotes and observations. In this beautifully illustrated book you're in great company. Barnes is a sane and steady guide... Wonderful stuff." -- Niall McMonagle * Irish Independent *
"Extremely rewarding, informative, attentive, thoughtful, entertaining essays." -- David Sexton * Evening Standard *
"This is an erudite, entertaining and highly personal collection of essays from the Booker Prize-winning novelist." -- Sebastian Shakespeare * Tatler *
