Synopsis:

While at one of Dr. John Bentley's notorious book burning parties, Gregory Collins, brilliant but unattractive, encounters Mike Smith, a gorgeous classmate, and when Gregory's book is accepted for publication, he convinces Mike to take his place on the book jacket, a deception that plunges Mike into the spotlight of literary success. Reprint.


Review:

"Like David Lodge, Nicholson makes light fiction out of heavyweight subjects, and there are good jokes to be made out of the fusion of lunacy and literary criticism...Nicholson is an assiduous host throughout, plying the reader with jokes and amusements."

Marcel Theroux, New York Times Book Review, 02/10/2002

Review:

"Geoff Nichols...seems to be having a lot of fun writing his particular brand of satire....Only Nicholson could weave such a playfully entangled plot while dropping in riffs on Gaston Bachelard's THE POETICS OF SPACE, self-perpetuating madness, and the history of book burning. BEDLAM BURNING, however, is a bit too shaggy."

Rob Spillman, Bookforum, Spring 2002
