9780099554226: The British Museum Is Falling Down

The British Museum is Falling Down is a brilliant comic satire of academia, religion and human entanglements. First published in 1965, it tells the story of hapless, scooter-riding young research student Adam Appleby, who is trying to write his thesis but is constantly distracted - not least by the fact that, as Catholics in the 1960s, he and his wife must rely on 'Vatican roulette' to avoid a fourth child.

Review:

"Brilliantly funny" ( Guardian)

"A comic tour de force...the hapless Appleby remains one of his most keenly observed characters" ( Observer)

Book Description:

A brilliant satire from the Booker-shortlisted author of Deaf Sentence, about academia, religion and the perils of 'Vatican roulette'.
