5.0 out of 5 stars an unexpected pleasure, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like most of the best books I've read, its unexpectedness only adds value to a memoir of an educational system which I consider to be the last bastion of true egalitarianism of the post war era. Sadly, unlike the author, I did not make the right decisions, or indeed bring sufficient application to bear in my own studies - at least during my school years. None the less, this book reminds me how fortunate I was to have enjoyed a grammar school education, as well as illuminating me in many areas of English literature that I have neglected. Perhaps not for much longer...
