In the summer of 1885, three Frenchmen arrived in London for a few days' shopping. One was a Prince, one was a Count, and the third was Samuel Pozzi, society doctor, pioneer gynaecologist and free-thinker. The Man in the Red Coat is at once a fresh and original portrait of the Belle Epoque and a life of a man ahead of his time. Barnes  also illuminates the fruitful and long-standing exchange of ideas between Britain and France, and makes a compelling case for keeping that exchange alive.
