Short and powerful, it confidently establishes techniques and themes which will dominate his later writing. Multiple characters The most obvious feature is the technique of featuring a dozen or so characters and continually cross-cutting between them. The title, The Picturegoers, is not as mysterious and cryptic as I initially took it to be: the book literally describes a cast of picturegoers ie a group of (generally young) people who, on the evening described in part one, all converge on their local, run-down cinema in the fictional town of Brickley, and for whom the cinema flickers in and out.

The Picturegoers is David Lodge's first novel and it read very much like one. He has continued to release novels for over 40. .The charming aspect of The Picturegoers is its portrayal of the end of an era when everyone went to the movies because there was not yet any television.

Therefore he is included in My Big Fat Reading Project. Therefore I read his first novel. The movie theater of the novel works, somewhat awkwardly, as a micro-environment for several disparate characters and their stories.

In his astutely observed first novel, David Lodge ushers in a congregation of characters whose hopes, confusions and foibles play out alongside the celluloid fantasies of the silver screen.
