Overview

Home Truths by David Lodge

From the author of the Booker Prize finalist Small World.
 
Adrian Ludlow, a novelist with a distinguished reputation and a book on the “A” level syllabus, is now seeking obscurity in a cottage beneath the Gatwick flight path. His university friend Sam Sharp, who has become a successful screenwriter, drops in on the way to Los Angeles, fuming over a vicious profile of himself by Fanny Tarrant, one of the new breed of Rottweiler interviews, in a Sunday newspaper. Together they decide to take revenge on the interviewer, though Adrian is risking what he values most: his privacy.
 
David Lodge's dazzling novella examines with wit and insight the contemporary culture of celebrity and the conflict between the solitary activity of writing and the demands of the media circus.
 
“Sharp, intelligent, surprising and fun.”—The Times
 
“Lodge is pure dazzling style, book after book, in his fusion of form and content.”—The New Republic
