Absolutely! But I was running late to get my son.

I don't think anyone was harmed that someone else might have posted about those books first.

Oh, I loved it. I'm a huge David Lodge fan; I've read almost everything he's written. As a fan of Small World, you should read the first of his campus trilogy, Changing Places, which also is hilarious; the third book isn't quite up to the first two, IMO. It's not as flat-out funny, but then it's probably more realistic.

Unfortunately, that's the only one by him that I've read, which actually strikes me as strange considering how much I, too, loved it. --- I'll certainly check out 'Changing Places.'

Have you read that Joyce Carol Oates novel I mentioned? Wonderful fun.

I love her work and was hoping she would win the Nobel Prize soon, but it's probably not likely

I have not but I've already added it to the list. No ebook, unfortunately.

I can't keep up with JCO; she writes faster than I can read.

I have tremendous respect for authors like that, in the abstract. Though I wonder if they have ever heard of, or considered, taking some time off. and I wonder what that is doing to their physical and long term mental health.
