A Novella

by David Lodge

Category: Fiction / J - L
Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd
Publication date: 29 June 2000
Number of pages: 160

Description:
David Lodge's extended novella is a delicious contemporary comedy on the perils of celebrity. It concerns a plot for revenge hatched by two writers, Adrian, a distinguished novelist seeking obscurity in a cottage near Gatwick and Sam, a successful scriptwriter who drops in on his old university friend en route to LA. The object of their revenge is one of the new breed of Rottweiler interviewers, a young woman who writes vicious profiles for a paper and who has just published a particularly nasty profile of Sam. Naturally, it all goes completely wrong.

Author's Biography:
David Lodge is Honorary Professor of English at the University of Birmingham, where he taught from 1960 until 1987. He is the author of ten bestselling novels, including NICE WORK, SMALL WORLD and most recently THERAPY - all are published by Penguin. He lives in Birmingham.
