Quite A Good Time To Be Born - A Memoir: 1935-1975
This memoir will be published to coincide with David Lodge's 80th birthday. It describes how David became a writer, principally of prose fiction and literary criticism, beginning with the early experiences and influences that fed into his work. This memoir covers the first half of David's life, up to the age of forty: he hopes to write another book about the second half, in added extra time.
