Euphoric kingdom college with its whitestone, sun-drenched campus and England's damp red-brick collage of Rummidge have an annual professorial alternate scheme, and because the first day of the final yr of the tumultuous sixties dawns, Philip Swallow and Morris Zapp are the specified exchangees. They be aware of they will be swapping category rosters, yet what they do not know is that during a wildly spiraling transatlantic involvement they will quickly be swapping scholars, colleagues, or even other halves. Changing Places is a hilarious send-up of educational lifestyles, highbrow style, intercourse, and marriage via a author Anthony Burgess has known as "one of the simplest novelists of his generation."
