Arthur and George by Julian Barnes.


This book is a fictionalized account of the lives of Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle and George Edalji and the interesting intersection of their
lives. It appears the creator of Sherlock Holmes did a bit of
investigation himself. The life of Arthur is not surprisingly an
interesting tale, but making George a fully fleshed out character was
an impressive feat. And the story that brought them together is
gripping. A thoroughly enjoyable, well-written book. Shortlisted for
the Booker Prize.
