9780330390316: The History Man
From the Publisher:

The History Man tells the story of Barbara and Howard Kirk, their very modern marriage and their equally radical politics. Set in the fictional world of Watermouth University, Bradbury brilliantly captures the complexities of academic life, from tedious meetings and work-place machinations, to corruption and disruption at the highest levels. And as the unease and unhappiness behind the Kirk's relationship becomes apparent, so too does Bradbury's ability to dissect the human heart and character. His insightful, profound portrayal of a marriage in crisis is utterly convincing and compelling.

'Malcolm Bradbury has come up with a novel that simply must be read' ELIZABETH BERRIDGE, Daily Telegraph

'Extremely witty . . . Bradbury writes brilliantly' New York Times

'Very funny . . . a quite ruthless satire' Evening Standard
