David Lodge to write book on H G Wells

Harvill Secker and Vintage have brought David Lodge’s new book, A Man in Parts, a novel about the life of H G Wells.

Liz Foley, Harvill Secker’s Publishing Director, said, 'We're all absolutely delighted to be publishing A Man of Parts. It's an exceptional piece of work from a true master and vividly brings to life both the man and the age'.

Vintage have also required the rights for the backlist of David’s novels, previously owned by Penguin. Re-released in April 2011, they will be shortly followed by David’s newest achievement.

Rachel Cugnoni, Publishing Director of Vintage said, 'David Lodge is one of England's finest and most celebrated writers. It is an enormous privilege to add him to the Vintage list.'
