This is the first of David Lodge's Novels, written in his early twenties. It doesn't have the depth of his later novels, but you can definitely see the threads and themes that he develops in later books - ie love, catholicism etc. The novel revolves around the Brickley "Palladium" - its staff and its regulars. I enjoyed it! First published 1960, this is the second edition of 1993 and includes a really interesting foreword by the Author.

From the back cover:
Mark, the cynical intellectual, who seeks sensuality in the body of an ex-novice and finds spirituality; Clare, his girlfriend, who loses faith and discovers passion; Father Kipling, the scandalized priest; Harry, the sexually frustrated Teddy boy - just some among the crowd who make their Saturday-night pilgrimage to the peeling surburban Mecca of the Palladium, Brickley, and who touch and shape each other's destinies.
