A wonderfully candid and insightful account of a writer's life: astute, unpretentious and humane. -- William Boyd
A vivid picture of a lost world. -- Matthew Reisz * Times Higher Education *
One of the greatest storytellers in existence and a master of suspense... [Lodge] combines an analytical, scientific way of looking at life...with a vivid, poetic imagination... a uniquely honest record of a successful English novelist's life. There is more truth about the literary life in this book than you will find in a thousand doctoral theses, or a million promotional interviews with famous writers. Or most memoirs. It is a true gem -- Eilis Ni Dhuibhne * Irish Times *
Irresistible... One of the fascinations of the memoir is the variety of critical techniques that are shown... this fleshed-out diary is curiously addictive -- Marina Vaizey * The Arts Desk *
An absorbing account... endearing, and...revealing... at no point...has [Lodge] betrayed his roots by giving in to the temptations of literary grandeur... authentic -- James Walton * Financial Times *
