9780140124194: The British Museum Is Falling Down (King Penguin)

Penguin Decades bring you the novels that helped shape modern Britain. When they were published, some were bestsellers, some were considered scandalous, and others were simply misunderstood. All represent their time and helped define their generation, while today each is considered a landmark work of storytelling.

David Lodge's The British Museum is Falling Down was published in 1965 and is a brilliant comic satire of academia, religion and human entanglements. 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'.
