By David Lodge
"A trio of wonderful novels in a comic book mode that the writer has now made thoroughly his own...a reason for celebration." -The big apple occasions publication Review
David Lodge's 3 delightfully subtle campus novels, now collected jointly in a single quantity, disclose the realm of academia at its best-and its worst. In Changing Places, we meet Philip Swallow, British lecturer in English on the college of Rummidge, and the flowery American Morris Zapp of Euphoric kingdom collage, who perform a professorial alternate software on the shut of the tumultuous sixties. Ten years later in Small World, older yet no longer considerably wiser, they're let out at the foreign convention circuit-along with a memorable and slightly oversexed solid of dozens. And in Nice Work, the leftist feminist Dr. Robyn Penrose at Rummidge college is assigned to shadow the director of an area engineering company, sparking a collision of ideologies and life that turns out not likely to foster something except mutual antipathy.
