Product Description

Review

"The most brilliant and also the funniest novel that he has written" (London Review of Books)

"Ingenious and proliferate plotting...a new comic debacle over every page" (The Times)

"Academic infightings, couplings, touching, funny and frightful set pieces, dark humour, sharp wit and plain farce - here is everything one expects from this author but thricefold and three times as entertaining as anything he has written before" (Sunday Telegraph)

"A wonderful tissue of outrageous coincidences and correspondences, teasing elevations of suspense and delayed climaxes" (Observer)

Book Description

The second novel of David Lodge's hilarious campus trilogy - shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1984.

3.0 out of 5 stars David Lodge Flying Free 17 Feb 2014
By Annbon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read most of Lodges books and enjoyed them. They concentrate on what he knows best life in universities and all the rivalries over work and sex. This one I enjoyed much less Perhaps because the characters were less believable and the situation of flying around the world to conferences appeared indulgent and out of step with the reality of post Thatcher university cut backs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun recreation of the literary world! 19 Jun 2014
By Laura Herrlein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It depicts, or satirizes, the academic world of the literates. Competence, envy, losses and love affairs. Peculiar in the good sense, appealing, very clever. Very Lodge-like!
