Synopsis:

The British author of The Debt to Pleasure tells the tale of Mr. Phillips, an ordinary Londoner who sees the world with completely different eyes when his safe, routine existence is shattered after he loses his job of fifteen years. Reprint.


Review:

"[T]here is a vein of the kind of lively, inventive observations and digressions which made THE DEBT TO PLEASURE so enjoyable. The book is filled with satisfyingly epigrammatic one-liners....Lanchester has great verbal facility, but he rarely lets fluency become glibness....[A]t its best the book vividly conveys a certain level of London reality rarely encountered in fiction, and confirms John Lanchester as a broader and more flexible talent than might previously have been supposed."

Christopher Tayler, Times Literary Supplement, 01/21/2000

Review:

"[I]t is exceptionally funny and often astoundingly intelligent--but it is quizzical....MR. PHILLIPS is a genuine contemporary philosophical novel, a comedy of manners of thought....With its virtuosity of style, its lack of casual sentimentality, and its easy way with the comic problems of philosophy, MR. PHILLIPS is a contemporary TRISTAM SHANDY."

Adam Phillips, London Review of Books, 03/02/2000

Book Description: Penguin Books, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 197 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. Mr. Phillips wakes on a summer s Monday morning in his modest, nearly mortgage-free house, ready to face another ordinary working day. Except this day is far from ordinary, for on the previous Friday, Mr. Phillips was summarily sacked. Unable to deal with this disaster--unable even to tell his own wife--Mr. Phillips rises at his usual hour and prepares himself for the job he no longer has. As he wanders the streets of London, what he sees triggers memories. Gradually a picture develops of a decent man who, only days before, knew exactly who and what he was--husband, home-owner, father, valued employee--and on this day wonders who and what he can become. Using the bits and pieces of one man s past, John Lanchester has drawn a fully dimensional life and, in the process, made in Mr. Phillips an Everyman for our times.
