Paradise, tourist style. It's a very long way from home.

Bernard Walsh is in Hawaii on family business, escorting his querulous father to the bedside of a long-forgotten aunt. His mission transports him from quiet obscurity in Rummridge, England, to a lush tropical playground, from cloistered solitude into the unfamiliar company of package tourists: honeymooners; young women looking for Mr. Nice; families nuclear and fissile. But it is the island itself that holds the most astonishing surprises, as an accidental encounter opens up to Bernard possibilities of life, and love, never dreamed of in his normally overcast habitat. Paradise News is an enchanting--and very funny--portrait of the late flowering of an honest man.

About the Author:

David Lodge is the author of twelve novels and a novella, including the Booker Prize finalists Small World and Nice Work. He is also the author of many works of literary criticism, including The Art of Fiction and Consciousness and the Novel.

From AudioFile:

A gently comic novel of self-fulfillment and culture-clash brings an Anglo-Irish theology teacher to Hawaii with his difficult elderly father in tow. Charles Armstrong, a Brit, reads expressively at a brisk clip. His characterizations are hit-and-miss. All his women are whiny, and his American accent laughable. On the other hand, he makes particularly memorable the ignorant Irish father and a self-important anthropologist completely devoid of common sense. Y.R. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
