9780099554196: Therapy

A successful sitcom writer with plenty of money, a stable marraige, a platonic mistress and a flash car, Laurence 'Tubby' Passmore has more reason than most to be happy. Yet neither physiotherapy nor aromatherapy, cognitive-behaviour therapy or acupuncture can cure his puzzling knee pain or his equally inexplicable mid-life angst.

As Tubby's life fragments under the weight of his self-obsession, he embarks - via Kierkegaard, strange beds from Rummidge to Tenerife to Beverly Hills, a fit of literary integrity and memories of his 1950s South London boyhood - on a picaresque quest for his lost contentment.

Review:

"Full of delights... His view of our neuroses is sane, intelligent and amused" (John Mortimer Sunday Times)

"Energetic, comic...a highly ingenious games-board of moves and counter-moves" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Lodge remains one of the very best English comic novelists of the post-war era; and Therapy is good for you" (Time Out)

"Takes off on wings of humour and pathos which would not have disgraced Lodge's great hero Dickens... A splendid novel" (Daily Express)

"A real treat...a joy - a sobering joy, but a joy none the less" (Observer)

Book Description:

A highly entertaining novel about a successful sitcom writer's search for his lost contentment.
