Lucky Jim

Kingsley Amis (1922-1995)
Lucky Jim
Introduction by David Lodge
New York and London: Penguin Books, 2002

Not the greatest novel I’ve read but the one closest to
my heart, this sublime academic comedy not only kept
me sane during graduate school but has remained, in a
half-century of re-readings, as fresh and hilarious as ever.
