The Practice Of Writing
Essays, Lectures, Reviews and a Diary
This is a collection of entertaining and thought-provoking pieces on the relationship between creative writing, the teaching of the same and the task of dramatizing works for television and the stage.
David Lodge writes principally about Grahame Greene, Kingsley Amis and James Joyce,and from there goes on to tackle two questions: the value of creative writing,and the task of dramatizing literary works for tv and the stage. He is uniquely qualified as a novelist, critic and academic to write this book, and approaches his subject with a fine wit and accessible style.
