This review is from: Father and Son (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
Anyone who has not read this book is in for a treat. I wish I was reading it for the first time. It is a wonderfull account of Edmund Gosse's upbringing by fundamentalist parents. His father was an eccentric eminent scientist. There is a great deal of humour as well as pathos. This is a classic - read it.
