Book Launch: Writer’s Luck
Ikon hosts the launch of David Lodge’s second memoir Writer’s Luck. Born in January 1935, David Lodge was four when World War II began and grew up through decades of great social and cultural change. Unlike his first memoir, Quite A Good Time To Be Born, which covered the first forty years of his life, this one deals with only the next fifteen, because they were especially interesting and eventful for him, and he possessed a considerable archive of letters and diaries from which he was able to recover a detailed memory of his life in that period.
