Review:

"Sends the reader back to writers' works (including Mr. Lodge's own) with a renewed appreciation of what makes them tick and why" ( New York Times)

"These essays, so easy in manner, so well-built and informative, offer a fine blend of creative writing and criticism... The essays on writers who have meant most to him as a novelist, notably Graham Greene (on whom nobody has written better) and Joyce, are brilliant" ( Sunday Times)

"Mr. Lodge's meditations on Joyce, Nabokov and Kingsley Amis, are indeed small gems, the sort of essays you want to underline and commit to memory" ( New York Times)

"It is refreshing to be reminded that those who teach can also do" ( Observer)

Book Description:

An entertaining volume of essays, perfect for aspiring writers and curious readers.
