Praise

"This novel is as scintillating, engaging, and multidimensional as the man whose life and character it faithfully animates . . . Lodge neatly shifts between narrative and probing interview, to reveal the intersections of writer, thinker, and man . . . Ultimately, this novel’s sensitive and lively examination of its protagonist’s relationships with women is what really fleshes out (so to speak) his attractive character." — Christina Schwarz, The Atlantic

"A terrifically enjoyable novel . . . A Man of Parts explores, with great verve, Wells’s lifelong attempt to honor his own complexity, to be true to himself as a sexual being, a loving family man, a creative artist and an ambitious social thinker . . . Even if you’re up on Wells’s life and writings, Lodge makes his novel-cum-biography mesmerizing." — Michael Dirda, The Washington Post

"[A] smart, engaging novel . . . Lodge has made something of a specialty of intellectuals behaving badly in bed." — Christopher Benfey, The New York Times Book Review

"Entertaining and persuasive . . . A Man of Parts allows Lodge to concentrate on comedy and character . . . [his] interest is in the private rather than the public Wells." — Claire Tomalin, The New York Review of Books
