Description de l'ouvrage

7 avril 2011

The restrictions of a wartime childhood in in London and subsequent post-war shortages have done little to enrich Timothy's early youth.

But everything changes when his glamorous older sister, Kath, invites him to spend the summer at Heidelberg. Kath, who left home long ago to work for the American army, introduces her sixteen-year-old brother to a lifestyle that is deliriously fast, furious and extravagant.

Dazzled by the indulgent habits of the American forces, but at the same time sensitive to the broken spirits of the German community beneath this sparkling surface, Timothy will find that his summer holiday is in more ways than one an unforgettable rite of passage.

Quatrième de couverture

The restrictions of a wartime childhood in London and ensuing post-war shortages have done little to enrich Timothy's early youth.

But everything changes when his glamorous older sister, Kath, invites him to spend the summer in Heidelberg. Kath left home long ago to work for the American army, and introduces her sixteen-year-old brother to a deliriously fast, furious and extravagant lifestyle. Dazzled by the indulgence and glamour of their way of life, but at the same time sensitive to the broken spirits of ordinary Germans beneath this sparkling surface, Timothy will find that his summer holiday is in more ways than one an unforgettable rite of passage.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deeply felt and deftly told autobiographical novel 19 novembre 1997
Par Eileen Galen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
British writer and critic Lodge's smart and tender novel begins in London during WW2. The narrator, Timothy, is a much-loved child in a middle class home. The voice is intimate and childishly sincere and perfectly suited to Lodge's intentions: sympathetic understanding of a very likable kid. Characters are affectionately but not cloyingly drawn, and bad things happen, too. Eventually Timothy goes to postwar US-occupied Germany to visit his much older sister (in Lodge's actual past, it was an aunt). It's a heady experience. Some of the best Lodgeisms are in this novel: the untrustworthiness of happiness, which he fears is simply "a ripening target for fate;" the meaning of travel; leavetaking and loss; loyalty to home and the known vs. the desire for adventure and newness; the powerful lure of the material world; love and eroticism and their yearned-for occasional convergence.Funny, too. This novel is a gem and a great yarn besides.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The fifties seen from the sixties 26 janvier 2001
Par D. P. Birkett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
A teenager from an overly respectable family in the cramped restricted England of 1951 gets a glimpse of the good life lived by affluent Americans in Germany. Having lived in Britain and visited Germany in the fifties and come to America in the sixties I could identify with much of it. Lodge tries to use the US/UK contrast to make a point about the uses of adversity and the trauma of poverty. The problem with this is that, as a paradigm of restrictiveness and backwardness the England of 1951 wasn't that bad. I meet people now in the US from Bangladesh, Egypt, Haiti and points East and South for whom the culture shock of American wealth and freedom is infinitely greater. Fiction may not be the right vehicle for the point he wants to make. I understood more from the introduction (in which he suggests that the poverty of 1950's Britain was due to government policies)and the epilog. In the introduction he mentions an epilog by Don Kowalski that was excised from the original edition and has not been reinstated in this one. It would be interesting to read that.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Like boyhood tales from your favorite uncle 25 décembre 2000
Par "yorkshirepudding" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"Out of the Shelter" is a gentle story written with a spirit of generosity. I think Lodge has some affection for all his characters, even his villains. Reading this book feels like hearing your favourite uncle telling stories of his boyhood.
For all this, it certainly isn't Lodge's best book. (It originally came out in 1970, his third book.) Bits feel clumsy, lacking in confidence - sometimes there's a bit too much explanation of characters' motivation and transitions between scenes can be jarring. The narration is peculiar in places, as if it was originally written in the first person and then quickly rewritten with an omniscient narrator.
I'd still recommend the book.
Further recommendations: If you're looking to read your first book by Lodge, try `Changing Places'. If you already love Lodge, this is a great way to continue the affair. You might also like books by Alison Lurie and Wallace Stegner.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny with a twist of sadness 26 septembre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
As a professor, I used this book when teaching a class on British history. It's one of my favorite books and my students loved it as well. Lodge is an incredibly gifted writer and his ability to evoke the more painful aspects of adolescence (while letting you see the amusing side of it as well) is fantastic. It also provides a wonderful insight into American culture and our consumer-minded society.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Brings back my memories of living in Germany in the mid-fifties 21 novembre 2005
Par Michael K. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Originally published in a slightly different form in 1970, this was one of Lodge's earliest-written books and differs considerably from his later "academic" fiction. It's also the most autobiographical of his works, featuring Timothy Young who, like Lodge, was born into a lower-middle-class family in southeast London in 1935, and who, also like Lodge, spent a month on holiday in Heidelberg in 1951 during the Allied occupation. Timothy, who is brighter than his parents really care for or understand, has a chance at university instead of apprenticeship, but he's hesitant to leave the world he's used to and in which he knows his way around so thoroughly. Going to visit his ten-years-older sister, who works for the American forces, however, is in every way the turning point of his life, his first chance to leave the "shelter" of family and habits. He discovers he can deal with foreign places and foreign people -- both Germans and Yanks -- and can get along on his own. He encounters new ideas through his sister's friends, notions that open his mind to the possibilities of the future. And he begins to figure out his own sexuality along the way. Lodge is very good with narrative. Timothy is a very sympathetic character and the writing style evolves as he does. A first-rate Bildungsroman.
