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?

Tom Perrotta
Jonathan Coe
Barbara 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

Oooh, just needed some new ideas for books to read over the long, dark winter months.
Love Anne Tyler, Anita Shreve and Kate Atkinson.
Could someone suggest titles by eg Barbara Trapido or any of the others mentioned?
