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
