A Man of Parts by David Lodge – review | Books | The Guardian
Apr 9, 2011 novel is an intimate portrait of HG Wells.

The “voice” is conveniently conversant with books about Wells at that time unwritten – Rebecca West’s version of their affair, Anthony West’s revisions of his mother’s so-called revisions, the slipshod Michael Coren biography with its broadly unfounded accusations of anti-Semitism, the history of the Fabian society as written by loyalist Fabians. What it does require is a shape, and Lodge gives it one, first by beginning at the end, in Hanover Terrace, London, in 1944 as the dying author reviews his past life and, second, by having Wells interrogate himself, as if conducting a Q&A session with an unusually well-prepared interviewer. It bounds along terrifically and never tires, even in bed.

Great quotes from White House incumbents: will Donald Trump be joining them? Tommy Cooper was one of Britain's best-loved comedians. In bed Rebecca West called him Jaguar and he called her Panther, names which dissolved old gender norms of prey and predator. The personal and the public are, in any case, hard to separate.

No less important an endowment was his boundless enthusiasm. Eugenics, antisemitism, warmongering, male chauvinism, double standards: he answers the charges with a mix of stubborn defensiveness and belated guilt. This is the voice of a novelist “both like and unlike himself in earlier years when he wrote quasi-autobiographical novels. It's not the most subtle of devices but it does allow a break from the free indirect style.

    Man of Parts Lodge, David

    Lodge isn't the first novelist to recognise the potential of such material. It offers a record of events whose importance consists in the fact that they happened rather than in the patterning of a larger truth. We meet him as an elderly has-been with just two years left to live, brooding on his prospective obituaries and being provoked by a disembodied voice which is “sometimes… friendly, sometimes challenging, sometimes neutrally inquiring” into long conversations with himself about his life, about what really happened, when and why.

    But sympathy is no guarantee of success: you also need narrative drive. What it does require is a shape, and Lodge gives it one, first by beginning at the end, in Hanover Terrace, London, in 1944 as the dying author reviews his past life and, second, by having Wells interrogate himself, as if conducting a Q&A session with an unusually well-prepared interviewer. With some subjects that would be a failing, but Wells's life is so extraordinary that it needs no embroidery.

    Eugenics, antisemitism, warmongering, male chauvinism, double standards: he answers the charges with a mix of stubborn defensiveness and belated guilt. Its power is cumulative: there are no flashes of revelation or startling moments, just a slow unfolding of friendships and feuds, plots and counter plots. Less grounded novelists would let their imagination run away with them but Lodge remains scrupulous and scholarly.
