A Book For All and None From The Oxford Times "It's certainly not a sex on the campus novel," she says, when I mention David Lodge, anteojos ray ban who made his reputation with stories of copulating academics.
"Absolutely not." A Book For All and None is Dr Morgan's 'literary debut' she has written an earlier novel but doesn't want to discuss it.
