The Crossroads (Live)
ISBN 13: 9780710070630
Writing both literary criticism and novels, British author David Lodge has learned to practice what he teaches. A professor of Modern English literature, both his fiction and nonfiction have found a large readership in the United Kingdom and the United States. To maintain his dual approach to writing, Lodge has attempted to alternate a novel one year and a literary criticism the next throughout his career. Lodge's fiction has been described as good writing with a good laugh, and he is praised for his ability to treat serious subjects sardonically. This comic touch is evident in his first novel, "The Picturegoers" in which the conflict of Catholicism with sensual desire, a recurrent theme, is handled with wit and intelligence. Some of the author's other hilarious novels include "Nice Work" , which Lodge adapted into an award-winning television series, and "Therapy" , a sardonic look at mid-life crisis. In a unique approach, he often uses his own works for critical examination and tries to give prospective writers insights into the complex creative process.
