9780099554233: Paradise News

Bernard Walsh, agnostic theologian, has a professional interest in heaven. But when he travels to Hawaii with his reluctant father Jack, to visit Jack's dying, estranged sister it feels more like purgatory than paradise.

Surrounded by quarrelling honeymooners, a freeloading anthropologist and assorted tourists in search of their own personal paradise, and with his father whisked off to hospital after an unfortunate accident, Bernard is beginning to regret ever coming to Haiwaii. Until, that is, he stumbles on something he had given up hope of finding: the astonishing possibility of love.

Review:

"Extremely funny and sharply perceptive" ( Evening Standard)

"The poignant personal relations and the Hawaiian way of life are recorded with the sardonic perception of a latter-day Evelyn Waugh" ( Spectator)

"Further proof that Lodge is master of subtle scintillating satire" ( Daily Mail)

"Amusing, accessible, intelligent" ( Financial Times)

Book Description:

A witty, charming comedy about tourism, family secrets and finding love in the most unexpected places.
