Description du produit

Revue de presse

"One of the best novelists of his generation" (Anthony Burgess Observer)

"His novels engender a flowing sense of fun" (Spectator)

"Lodge has brilliantly dramatized a kind of Anglo-American encounter. To have made so well-ordered and humanely engaging a work of fiction in the process is a striking achievement" (Times Literary Supplement)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting and Pleasant 22 avril 2016
Par Gerald McGourty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A good, relaxed read. The book was recommended to me by a German friend as I had lived in Frankfurt as a teenager and much later in life spent three years in Heidelberg. Lodge's discriptions of childhood during the Blitz are interesting as are the observations of American occupation forces in Germany from an Englishmens POV.

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.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 'Out of the Shelter' by David Lodge, shipped by New Chapter Recycling 16 décembre 2011
Par Emma J. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
"I am most disappointed with this copy. I had paid $10.48 for a new paperbook and got a recycled book that had been dedicated to the original buyer in handwriting on the inside cover. This is meant for a gift so it is not only unacceptable but also most inconvenient. Time is limited until Christmas and I particularly wanted this book." I have put one star for the suppliers not the book! The book is a lovely little account of the war years from a child's perspective. This item was shipped from New Chapter Recycling.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 As flat and dreary as post-WWII England 16 avril 2010
Par Avid Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is my third David Lodge book, and I think I've just about exhausted my interest in him. I find his humor to be lukewarm, his musings about Catholicism to be uninteresting, and his sexual desires to be strangely out of place with the passivity of the rest of his narration. I think I would find Lodge to be very creepy in-person.

In "Out of the Shelter," Lodge takes a semi-autobiographical look at growing up during and immediately after WWII in England. First, there were wartime terrors, deaths, and shortages. Then there were years of deprivation of goods and services, as England slowly climbed out of an economic hole.

For the narrator, Timothy, a chance to spend a several-week school vacation with his sister in Heidelberg, Germany, where she was working for the American forces, becomes his entry to a much more exciting, colorful world. He literally comes "out of the shelter" that is evoked at the beginning of the book in a bomb shelter, as well as the metaphorically limited life that his parents have accepted accepted for themselves and designed for him (including his years in Catholic schools and their modest ambitions for his career).

In Heidelberg, Timothy tags along with his sister and her hard-drinking, sex-talking American pals. He devours the beauty of the region, and he revels in all of the foods and consumer goods which have been denied to him in England. He hears about sex, and he hears sex. He has sex, sort of. He even becomes witness to a possible spy-and-homosexuality scandal involving his sister's friends. Those few weeks change Timothy's life.

Yes, despite the tumultuous weeks, the book is flat. The descriptions of the partying in Heidelberg are tepid compared to really good authors, like Fitzgerald. The dialogue falls far short of witty. The emotional descriptions are pallid compared to a Joyce or a Henry James. (And if you think I'm not being fair to hold him up to the Joyce-James standard, I'd respond that Lodge brings it on himself by writing in his "Afterward" that he modeled this book after their works.) And then, in the middle of this cliched stuff, Lodge bursts out with sexual remarks all over the place --- a 5-year-old boy and girl lying naked with each other, women joking about their breast sizes, a woman spreading her legs in front of the teenager, eavesdropping on sex in the next room, etc. It just doesn't ring true.

On the positive side, the author does his best work in describing the feeling of despair that youngsters and young adults must have felt in England in the late 1940s and early 1950s. It was the prime of their lives, but they were stuck in a gray, wet, cold country that, in the author's words was "a whole system of prudent rules and safeguards, painfully learned in the school of scarcity." It's no wonder that the author (in real life) and his characters yearned to escape it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Brings back my memories of living in Germany in the mid-fifties 20 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.
