    'His mouth had been used as a latrine by some small creature of the night, and then as a mausoleum. During the night, too, he'd somehow been on a cross-country run and then been expertly beaten up by secret police. He felt bad'. 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.

A Humorous Read!

by Icewoman on Jul 13, 2007

Lucky Jim is the story of James Dixon as he struggles to overcome his vices and find his voice. Unexpected turns and humorous twists bring the reader into the story of this born loser, struggling within the education system. This book is highly recommended for its entertaining commentary on the generational gap in colleges and universities, which is perhaps as applicable today as it was at the book's post-WWII release.
