Item Number: 4019
London: Secker & Warburg, 1975.
First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by David Lodge on the title page. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket with light toning to the spine. A very bright example of a book that is prone to significant fading.
Changing Places is the first campus novel by novelist David Lodge. The subtitle is "A Tale of Two Campuses", and thus both the title and subtitle are literary allusions to Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities. "Not since Lucky Jim has such a funny book about academic life come my way" (The Sunday Times).
