'One of the very best English comic novelists of the post-war era' Time Out
The plot lines of The Campus Trilogy, radiating from its hub at the
redbrick University of Rummidge, trace the comic adventures of academics
who move outside familiar territory. Beginning in the late 60sChanging
Places follows the undistinguished English lecturer Philip Swallow and
hotshot American professor Morris Zapp as they exchange jobs, habitats and
eventually wives. Small World sees Swallow, Zapp, Persse McGarrigle and the
beautiful Angelica Pabst jet-set about the international conference scene,
combining academic infighting and tourism, esoteric chat and romance. And
finally, the feminist lecturer Robyn Penrose swaps the industrial novel for
a hard hat in Nice Work as she shadows the factory boss Victor Wilcox.
Sparks fly when their beliefs and lifestyles collide.
