Small World, by David Lodge

Small World is the second of David Lodge’s “academic” novels, following the even-more-fabulous-if-that’s-possible Changing Places. Small World is a fun, delightful romp. Covering large portions of the globe, poking fun at the conference-going lifestyle of academics, and, most of all, having great fun with the ridiculous gibberish spouted by all sorts of different schools of literary criticism (Lodge was a English professor, so he knows whereof he speaks), this makes for a delightful vacation read. And the more you know about deconstruction, the funnier it gets.
