Reviews

"Exciting...a book for starting up trains of thought or discussion... It did make me think, as a writer, as a reader, as a teacher" -- AS Byatt * Sunday Times *
"Here is scholarship made human... There has been no better populist study of fiction since Forster's Aspects of the Novel" * Financial Times *
"It is wonderful to be clued in to some of the magic tricks of the trade; the point of view, the stream of consciousness, the use of names, the sense of place, time-shift and intertextuality" * Los Angeles Times *
"Lodge has the knack of wearing his scholarship lightly... One finds here precisely that expansive, humane wisdom which is so sorely lacking in much narrow-minded modern criticism.... He gets to the bottom of things, telling us why we read fiction....admirers will find in The Art of Fiction concentrated essence of Lodge" * Guardian *
"These essays are as fresh and as readable as ever" -- David Evans * Independent *
