Jim Dixon has accidentally fallen into a job at one of Britain's new redbrick universities. A moderately successful future in the History Department beckons if he can survive the probationary year. Not the least of his problems is the necessity to keep in with his eccentric Professor Welch, who although detested and despised by Jim, has sufficient influence in the faculty to affect the continuation of his appointment. But first Jim must survive a madrigal-singing weekend at the Professor's, deliver a lecture on Merrie England, and resist Christine, the hopelessly desirable girlfriend of Welch's awful son Bertrand.

    " I can't find enough superlatives for Paul Shelley's reading of the classic. I loved it before, I adore it now I've heard this. Without a doubt one of the very best readings of any book I have listened to. What a terrific actor, with great comic timing. Particularly liked his take on the neurotic Margaret Peel and the abominable Professor Welch. Have this on tape, but would love it on CD "

    " Lucky Jim was so funny! I couldn't believe all the predicaments that he got into. The writing style seemed to match the subject matter--a British university community. Jim Dixon was smart and funny! "
