David Lodge’s frank and illuminating memoir about the years where he found great success as a novelist and critic.

In 1976 Lodge was pursuing a ‘twin-track career’ as novelist and academic. As a literary critic, he made serious contributions to the subject, before carnivalizing it in his comic-satiric novel Small World. The balancing act between his two professions was increasingly difficult to maintain, and he became a full-time writer just before he published his bestselling novel Nice Work.

‘A wonderfully candid and insightful account of a writer's life: astute, unpretentious and humane.’ William Boyd
