Mavis Cheek, Deborah Moggach, Laurie Graham, Kate Atkinson, some Anita Shreve.
Barbara TrapidoThere is no-one finer.
Michael Frayn (Headlong one of my favourites)Malcolm Bradbury (The History Man, Eating people is Wrong)You might like Robertson Davies if you haven't tried him.Kingsley Amis (earlier stuff best IMO)Susan Hill, Kate Atkinson, Mary Wesley perhaps?
Oh yes Barbara Trapido is an excellent woman! I can't read anyone 'like David Lodge' though, apart from a couple of Bradburys. Howard Jacobsen?
Thanks for the suggestions, will go to the library with a print out of this page!
Tom PerrottaJonathan CoeBarbara Vine (earlier stuff, she seems to have lost her touch with more recent offerings)
If you like Anne Tyler, have you tried Anita Shreve? Tho very different to David Lodge
