9780140261066: The Practice of Writing: Essays, Lectures, Reviews and a Diary

In his first critical work since the highly successful THE ART OF FICTION (0140174923), David Lodge writes principally about Grahame Greene, Kingsley Amis and James Joyce,and from there goes on to tackle two questions: the value of creative writing,and the task of dramatizing literary works for tv and the stage. He is uniquely qualified as a novelist, critic and academic to write this book, and approaches his subject with a fine wit and accessible style.
