Description - Writer's Luck: A Memoir: 1976-1991 by David Lodge

David Lodge's frank and illuminating memoir about the years where he found great success as a novelist and critic.

'A wonderfully candid and insightful account of a writer's life' William Boyd

Luck, good or bad, plays an important part in a writer's career.

In 1976 Lodge was pursuing a 'twin-track career' as novelist and academic but the balancing act was increasingly difficult, and he became a full-time writer just before he published his bestselling novel Nice Work.

Readers of Lodge's novels will be fascinated by the insights this book gives - not only into his professional career but also more personal experience, such as his growing scepticism of his Catholic religion and the challenges of parenting. Anyone who is interested in learning about the creative process and about the life of a writer will find Writer's Luck a candid and entertaining guide.
