Many professors are now comfortable communicating with a wide audience through the media, but John Carey was one of the first. In this warm, humorous memoir, he looks back over his journey from an ordinary background to the heart of the academic establishment, via his escape from the London Blitz to a rural idyll, his army service in Egypt, his love of books, and his inspiring meetings with writers such as Auden, Graves, Larkin and Heaney.
