28: Small World

David Lodge:

London: Secker And Warburg, 1984

8vo, first edition, original green cloth lettered in gilt on spine, dust-jacket, head and foot of spine very slightly bumped, minor ripple on spine on dust-jacket

Small World reintroduces Professors Philip Swallow and Morris Zapp from Lodge’s Changing Places, and  follows them around the international circuit of academic literary conferences. The campus novel at its best, an intellectual treat and amusing black comedy.

Shortlisted for the 1984 Booker Prize.

Annotated on 57 pages. Approximately 1,500 words.
