Nice Work by David Lodge
Winner of the Sunday Express Book of the Year Award and short-listed for the Booker Prize, "Nice Work" is a hilarious comedy of society and class misunderstandings. When Vic Wilcox, MD of Pringle's engineering works, meets English lecturer Dr Robyn Penrose, sparks fly as their lifestyles and ideologies collide head on. But, in time, both parties make some surprising discoveries about each other's worlds - and about themselves. 'A work of immense intelligence, informative, disturbing and diverting' - "Observer".
