From the critically acclaimed author of Nice Work and Small World comes a dazzling, compassionate comedy of midlife crisis. Lawrence Passmore, to all appearances, is sitting pretty. He writes for a successful TV show, has a new house, an expensive car, and a flat in London. But the one thing he does not have is contentment. His quest for the source of it will lead Lawrence on a journey into obsession. Simultaneous paperback release from Penguin.

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.

Book Description Penguin Books Ltd, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. By all appearances, Laurence Passmore is sitting pretty. True, he is almost bald and his nickname in Tubby, but the TV sitcom he writes keeps the money coming in, he has an exclusive house in Rummridge, a state-of-the-art car, a vigorous sex life with his wife of thirty years, and a platonic mistress to talk shop with. What money can t buy, and his many therapists can t deliver, is contentment. It s not the trouble behind the scenes of his TV show that s bugging him or even the persistent pain in his knee; it s this deeper, nameless unease. Is it a spiritual crisis or just one of the midlife variety?Tubby s quest for the source of it will lead into an obsession with Kierkegaard, brushes with the police, gossip-column notoriety, and strange beds and bedrooms worldwide.
