The man who wouldn't get up and other stories

Lodge, David, 1935- author

A nameless man - who has fallen out of love with life - refuses to get out of bed and becomes an unlikely local celebrity; four university friends travel to Ibiza for their first holiday away together and sex is very much on everyone's mind; a writer embarks on composing a short story at a holiday resort in the French Riviera surrounded by topless women only for the tale to take an unfortunate turn; and a young woman is desperate to find a new fiancé - she has a wedding schedule to stick to - after her lover abruptly leaves her. These are the characters that populate David Lodge's first collection of shrewd, funny and delightfully entertaining short stories
