Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. Kingsley Amis witty campus novel, Lucky Jim is a comedy that skewers the hypocrisies and vanities of 1950s academic life. This Penguin Modern Classics edition contains an introduction by David Lodge. Jim Dixon has accidentally fallen into a job at one of Britain s new red brick universities. A moderately successful future in the History Department beckons - as long as Jim can stave off the unwelcome advances of fellow lecturer Margaret, survive a madrigal-singing weekend at Professor Welch s, deliver a lecture on Merrie England and resist Christine, the hopelessly desirable girlfriend of Welch s awful son Bertrand. Inspired by Amis s friend, the poet Philip Larkin, Jim Dixon is a timeless comic character, adrift in a hopelessly gauche and pretentious world. Kingsley Amis (1922-1995), born in London, wrote poetry, criticism, and short stories, but is best remembered as the novelist whose works offered a comic deconstruction of post-war Britain. Amis explored his disillusionment with British society in novels such as Lucky Jim (1954) and That Uncertain Feeling (1955); his other works include The Green Man (1970) Stanley and the Women (1984), and The Old Devils (1986) which won the Booker Prize. If you enjoyed Lucky Jim , you might like Amis s The King s English , also available in Penguin Modern Classics . A flawless comic novel.I loved it then, as I do now. It has always made me laugh out loud. (Helen Dunmore, The Times ). A brilliantly and preposterously funny book. ( Guardian ). Bookseller Inventory # APG9780141182599
