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: Putnam Pub Group, E Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A., 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 8vo - over 7 in- 9 in Tall. First edition. Hard cover with dust jacket. New book. Mr Phillips wakes on the morning of July 31 in his modest, nearly mortgage-free home, in the bed he has contentedly shared with his wife of thirty years (though to be honest, at night he lies beside her and dreams of other women), ready to face another ordinary day. Except that for Mr Phillips, it is not an ordinary day, for on Friday, July 28, he was summarily sacked. Nonetheless, he rises at his usual hour and prepares himself as he has done his entire working life for the office he no longer has.This is the story of one day in the life of a decent man who only forty-eight hours before knew exactly who and what he was -- husband and father, accountant, home-owner, son -- and who on this day wonders who and what he can become. With his eye for the telling detail, his ear for the commonplaces of speech that make us who we are, his sympathy for the very ordinariness that sets us each apart, John Lanchester has created a jewel of a novel: From common clay, he has given us gold 8vo - over 7 in- 9 in Tall.

Book Description: Putnam Pub Group, 2000. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Book Description Mister Phillips, c'est vous, c'est moi, l'homme de la rue, le "petit homme" de Gogol, que rien ne distingue de ses voisins-ni ses préjugés, ni ses tabous, ni ses phobies, ni ses fantasmes-et qui voit soudain le ciel lui tomber sur la tête le jour où l'entreprise qu'il a diligemment servie pendant plusieurs décennies le licencie sans cérémonie. Ce Monsieur-Tout-le-Monde, à la cinquantaine bedonnante et au petit parfum d'Outre-Manche, va mettre à profit sa première journée d'oisiveté forcée pour s'offrir une promenade dans le Londres d'aujourd'hui et découvrir sa ville, ses congénères, leurs richesses, leurs faiblesse ou leurs bizarreries. La banalité tout apparente de ce périple londonien est subvertie tout au long par l'humour caustique de Lanchester qui fait la part belle à ces excentriques dont la littérature anglaise a le secret. --This text refers to the Paperback edition. From the Back Cover Mr. Phillips, c'est vous, c'est moi, l'homme de la rue, le " petit homme " de Gogol, que rien ne distingue de ses voisins-ni ses préjugés, ni ses tabous, ni ses phobies, ni ses fantasmes-et qui voit soudain le ciel lui tomber sur la tête le jour où l'entreprise qu'il a diligemment servie pendant plusieurs décennies le licencie sans cérémonie. Ce Monsieur Tout-le-Monde, à la cinquantaine bedonnante, va mettre à profit sa première journée d'oisiveté forcée pour s'offrir une promenade dans le Londres d'aujourd'hui et découvrir sa ville, ses congénères, leurs richesses, leurs faiblesses ou leurs bizarreries. La banalité tout apparente de ce périple londonien est subvertie tout au long par l'humour caustique de Lanchester, qui fait la part belle à ces " excentriques " dont la littérature anglaise a le secret. Témoin, par exemple, les trajets en métro aux heures de pointe, la visite guidée de la Tate Gallery et la découverte de la peinture préraphaélite par ce Candide au regard décapant, ou la prise d'otages lors de l'attaque d'une banque. S'il touche à certaines. Bookseller Inventory # 1127J244554
