Beschreibung

Polly, Dennis, Angela, Adrian and the rest are bound to lose their spiritual innocence as well as their virginities on the journey between university in the 1950s and the marriages, families, careers and deaths that follow. On the one hand there's Sex and then the Pill, on the other there is the traditional Catholic Church. In this razor-sharp novel David Lodge exposes the pressures that assailed Catholics everywhere within a more permissive society, and voices their eternal question: how far can you go?

Vorwort
A novel of satiric insight and comic despair dealing with the lives and loves of ten young Catholics in the 1960s and 70s.

Klappentext

'Funny, sad, knowledgeable' Irish Times

Polly, Dennis, Angela, Adrian and the rest are bound to lose their spiritual innocence as well as their virginities on the journey between university in the 1950s and the marriages, families, careers and deaths that follow. On the one hand there's Sex and then the Pill, on the other there is the traditional Catholic Church. In this razor-sharp novel David Lodge exposes the pressures that assailed Catholics everywhere within a more permissive society, and voices their eternal question: how far can you go?

'Huge, bitterly funny and superbly presented montage of the false nostrums that assailed Christianity like worms' Sunday Times

'Brilliant and intricate black comedy' Time Out

Also by David Lodge: [jpegs of Ginger You're Barmy; Therapy; The British Museum is Falling Down]
