Therapy (1995) is a novel by British author David Lodge. The story concerns a successful sitcom writer, Laurence Passmore, plagued by middle-age neuroses and a failed marriage. His only problem seems to be an "internal derangement of the knee" but a mid-life crisis has struck and he is discovering angst. His familiar doses of cognitive therapy, aromatherapy, and acupuncture all offer no help, and he becomes obsessed with the philosophy of Kierkegaard
I love David Lodge, but this book about sitcom writer Tubby Passmore didn't blow me away as much as his others. This book has taken me a few months to get through when normally I will devour a Lodge book in a day and night.
I love David Lodge, but this book about sitcom writer Tubby Passmore didn't blow me away as much as his others. Tubby is a very self obsessed character suffering from depression and I found his first person narrative a drudge to read through. Lodge doses up the final third of the book with his usual Catholic musings and a pilgrimage but I had lost interest by then. This book has taken me a few months to get through when normally I will devour a Lodge book in a day and night
David Lodge's frank and illuminating memoir about the years where he found great success as a novelist and critic. Luck plays an important part in the careers of writers.
David Lodge's frank and illuminating memoir about the years where he found great success as a novelist and critic. In this book David Lodge explores how his work was inspired and affected by unpredictable events in his life. In 1976 Lodge was pursuing a 'twin-track career' as novelist and academic. As a literary critic, he made serious contributions to the subject, before carnivalising it in his comic-satiric novel Small World.
Which makes Therapy a welcome change, at least initially. The story is told in the first-person and TV scriptwriter Passmore’s voice is refreshingly different in tone and idiolect from anything that’s gone before. Very confidently and amusingly (Lodge has done this so many times before) the entire middle section of the novel is made up of dramatic monologues from the ‘secondary’ characters. Thus Laurence bolsters the ‘realism’ of the text by including numerous references to contemporary events and trends
