Nice Work is a 1988 novel by British author David Lodge. It is the final volume of Lodge's "Campus Trilogy", after Changing Places (1975) and Small World: An Academic Romance (1984). Nice Work won the Sunday Express Book of the Year award in 1988 and was also shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
The larger socioeconomic background to the novel was the economic policies and educational budget reductions during the term of Margaret Thatcher. Part of the direct inspiration for the novel derived from Lodge's own real-life experiences of shadowing a friend who supervised an engineering firm.
