In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. As novelist and academic and novelist of the academic, David Lodge has entertained and informed readers for some 40 years with his often hilarious tales of on and off curriculum shenanigans at university campuses. Penguin has published eighteen of Lodge's books in paperback since 1978 and in this volume, he has selected some of his most memorable characters and moments to illustrate the high- and often low-minded life of the academic.
