Summary
Jim Dixon has accidentally fallen into a job at one of Britain's new redbrick universities. A moderately successful future in the History department beckons
Summary
Jix Dixon has a terrible job at a second-rate university. His life is full of things he could happily do without: the tedious and ridiculous Professor Welch, a neurotic and unstable girlfriend, Margaret, burnt sheets, medieval recorder music and over-enthusiastic students. If he can just deliver a lecture on 'Merrie England', a moderately successful career surely awaits him. But without luck, life is never simple. A hilarious satire on the British educational establishment, Lucky Jim is a book for anyone who has been a student, anyone who has been to university and anyone who has come to hate a job they have to keep.
