Synopsis

This timeless tale of English absurdity from the masterful Kingsley Amis is the tenth volume in the Hatchards Library.

Synopsis

Few novels have skewered the absurdities of academia so precisely and wittily. Jim Dixon, the novel’s comic and finely-drawn protagonist, is disgruntled with post-war life, particularly with his post as history lecturer at a red-brick university under a fusty professor he despises. His splendidly chippy attitude does little to help as he delivers a lecture drunk, picks the wrong girl and burns a bed, and with it his chances of a future. But, of course, he has luck on his side.
