Julian Barnes is awesome

Went to see Julian Barnes talk about his new book last night at that RSA – its a memoir about his parents and their deaths – it was a suprisingly light hearted discussion considering the topic – anyway he chatted about a bunch of awesome things but the best bit was his closing where he quoted Flaubert:

‘Prose is like hair, it shines with combing’

Thought this was awesome and true for many more things than prose.
