9780142180143: Lucky Jim

Jim Dixon has a lousy job at a second-rate university. His life is full of things he could do without: a tedious and ridiculous professor, a neurotic semi-detached girlfriend, burnt sheets, medieval recorder music and over-enthusiastic students. The solution seems to be fairly straightforward: pull faces behind people's backs, copy others' work and make sure the pretty girls choose his course. But without luck, life is never simple...

Product Description:

Jim Dixon is a young University History Lecturer in his probationary year. Unfortunately, he despises his eccentric mentor, Professor Welch. The situation worsens when Jim becomes romantically involved with Christine, the desirable girlfriend of Welch's awful son, Bertrand!

Product Description:

In his send-up of the academic world, the author poked fun at the British way of life, and gave post-war fiction a new and enduring figure to laugh at.
