Présentation de l'éditeur

Philip Swallow, Morris Zapp, Persse McGarrigle and the lovely Angelica are the jet-propelled academics who are on the move, in the air, and on the make, in David Lodge’s satirical ‘Small World’. It is a world of glamorous travel and high excitement, where stuffy lecture rooms are swapped for lush corners of the globe, and romance is in the air… ‘A wonderful tissue of outrageous coincidences and correspondences, teasing elevations of suspense and delayed climaxes’ Observer.

Biographie de l'auteur

David Lodge has written many bestselling novels, including THINKS and NICE WORK. His books have sold well over a million copies in Penguin. Formerly Professor of English at Birmingham University, he now writes full-time. He continues to live in Birmingham.

Première phrase
"APRIL is the cruellest month," Persse McGarrigle quoted silently to himself, gazing through grimy windowpanes at the unseasonable snow crusting the lawns and flowerbeds of the Rummidge campus. Lire la première page

HASH(0xa1ed6858) étoiles sur 5 Hugely enjoyable vintage satire of literary academia 20 octobre 2012
Par G.C. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
David Lodge's "Small World" first appeared in 1984, and won acclaim as a riotous, sometimes raunchy, satire of the academic literary set and the in-fighting that goes on in academia, with loads of literary jokes and references for the well-versed in medieval literature. Lodge makes some of the character names almost groaningly obvious allusions to literary and mythic personages (e.g. Arthur Kingfisher, Persse McGarrigle (whose first name Morris Zapp in the novel continually mispronounces as "Percy"), but his style is so breezy and engaging that you forgive the slight heavy-handedness of some of the names. In fact, Lodge makes the reading go down so easy that it's easy to miss how deftly he packs the literary allusions into his narrative.

Although the story contains loads of characters, including Philip Swallow, Morris Zapp, as well as Philip's wife Hilary and Morris' ex-wife Desiree, from the prior novel in Lodge's 'academic trilogy', "Changing Places", the heart of the story is Persse McGarrigle's quest literally around the world for the woman of his dreams. Many highly improbable coincidences abound, unless you accept that literary academia is a very self-confined hothouse where everyone really does know everyone else.

If you want a higher level of "beach reading" or "light reading", give this a try. In addition to being entertained on the pure surface level, your literary horizons might subliminally expand also.
