Publisher's Synopsis

In a career spanning six decades, David Lodge has been one of Britain's best-loved and most versatile writers.

With Varying Degrees of Success he completes a trilogy of memoirs which describe his life from birth in 1935 to the present day, and together form a remarkable autobiography. He describes the highs and lows of being a professional creative writer in several different genres, his extensive travels around the world, and the hope and desire of writers to make a significant and positive impression on their readers and audiences.

Varying Degrees of Success provides the reader with a privileged insight into the working practices and the creative life of a major British novelist.

'Continuously engaging... Glimpses of the ambition and energy required to fuel the final stretch of his near 60-year career as the most dependable of novelist-critics' New Statesman

'Lodge is the best British novelist never to have won the Man Booker prize' The Times
