The title of Malcolm Bradbury's third novel, published in 1975, has become a proverbial phrase, invoked in journalistic headlines and echoed by other writers (eg Alan Bennett's The History Boys) without any thematic reference to its source. Bradbury's take on it was darker and more troubled. The University of East Anglia, to which he moved from Birmingham (where we were colleagues) in 1966, was one of several new residential universities built in England in the 1960s on landscaped sites at the edge of cathedral cities and county towns.

Forty-year-old university professor Stuart Treece is rather set in his ways, and in the midst of the changing attitudes of the '50s, his encounters with the younger generation are making him feel decidedly alien. When he falls disastrously in love with one of his students all his efforts to acclimatize are hilariously undermined. Timeless and brilliant, Eating People is Wrong is Malcolm Bradbury's first novel, and established him as a master of satire.

Explore our range of cheap books by Malcolm Bradbury. The History Man is Malcolm Bradbury's masterpiece, the definitive campus novel and one of the most influential novels of the 1970s. Funny, disconcerting and provocative, Bradbury brilliantly satirizes a world of academic power struggles as his anti-hero seduces his away around campus. But beneath the surface is an altogether more affecting portrait: it reveals a marriage in crisis and demonstrates the fragility of the human heart.
