It is often said that women's magazines have kept the short story alive, and Good Housekeeping can certainly claim much of the credit, having regularly published short fiction by some of the greatest living writers from the 1920s to the present day.
In this absorbing volume, David Lodge turns his incisive critical skills onto his own profession, salutes the great writers who have influenced his work, wonders about the motives of biographers, ponders the merits of creative writing courses, pulls the rug from under certain theoretical critics and throws open the curtains on his own workshop.
David Lodge is widely regarded as one of the best writers of his generation. His many novels - written over a period of fifty years - are masterful satires, clever, satisfying and often hilarious, with memorable characters who live on long after each book is finished.
David Lodge's skill as a short story writer is less well-known but just as expert. Good Housekeeping has brought these three stories together for our Modern Voices series. Years separate the stories from each other but each tale reveals David's consistently sharp eye for human folly, his genius for irony and his warm affection for his characters.
David Lodge has also contributed an enlightening Afterword which puts all three stories in context.
