Sobre l'autor

Writing both literary criticism and novels, British author David Lodge has learned to practice what he teaches. A professor of Modern English literature, both his fiction and nonfiction have found a large readership in the United Kingdom and the United States. To maintain his dual approach to mostra'n més writing, Lodge has attempted to alternate a novel one year and a literary criticism the next throughout his career. Lodge's fiction has been described as good writing with a good laugh, and he is praised for his ability to treat serious subjects sardonically. This comic touch is evident in his first novel, "The Picturegoers" (1960) in which the conflict of Catholicism with sensual desire, a recurrent theme, is handled with wit and intelligence. "How Far Can You Go" (1980) released in United States as "Souls and Bodies" (1982) also examines sexual and religious evolution in a marvelously funny way. "Changing Places: A Tale of Two Campuses" (1975, 1979), based on Lodge's experience in Berkeley as a visiting professor, won the Hawthorne Prize and the Yorkshire Post fiction prize and solidified his reputation in America. Some of the author's other hilarious novels include "Nice Work" (1989), which Lodge adapted into an award-winning television series, and "Therapy" (1995), a sardonic look at mid-life crisis. Lodge's nonfiction includes a body of work begun in 1966 with "The Language of Fiction" and includes "The Art of Fiction: Illustrated from Classic and Modern Texts" (1992) and "The Practice of Writing: Essays, Lectures, Reviews and a Diary"(1996). In a unique approach, he often uses his own works for critical examination and tries to give prospective writers insights into the complex creative process. David John Lodge was born in London on January 28, 1935. He has a B.A. (1955) and M.A (1959) from University College, London and a Ph.D. (1967) and an Honorary Professorship (1987) from the University of Birmingham. Lodge is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. (Bowker Author Biography) David Lodge is the author of ten novels & a novella, including "Changing Places", "Small World" (shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1984), "Nice Work" (also shortlisted for the Booker), "Paradise News", "Therapy", &, most recently, "Home Truths". He is also the author of several works of literary criticism, including "The Art of Fiction" & "The Practice of Writing". He lives in Birmingham, England. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Coneixement comú



Epistolary comedy - read in the 90s a Name that Book (agost 2019)
English Fiction a Name that Book (setembre 2013)


Un llibre definitivament molt ben escrit. Un plaer per als lectors no nadius.

Això fa que inicialment siguin més suportables la intrascendència total de l'argument, els personatges plans o l'estranya barreja entre drama i comèdia, que al final ni fa riure ni fa plorar. Passat tres quarts de llibre, la situació es torna insostenible... Abandonat a la pàgina 220 per esgotament.
